Position: Researcher Scientist, PhD
Phone: +45 275 73 177
My academic career integrates approximately ten years of research entirely dedicated to the field of stream ecology. During my PhD and early postgraduate years my main scientific focus was quantifying contaminant effects on stream macrofauna and associated ecosystem processes and was based on mesocosm experiments and field surveys. During the past five years, I have increasingly broadened my scientific interests and competences towards other organism groups and human pressures relevant for stream management (e.g. hydromorphology and habitat quality). I have worked on multiple governmental advisory projects ranging from technical guidance documents to constructing new ecological indicators and producing various decision support systems addressing Water Framework Directive management needs. As such, all my research and governmental advisory projects are centered around applied aspects of freshwater ecology and ecotoxicology.
