Section: Økotoksikologi og risikovurdering
Research interests include investigating the effects of environmental contaminants on aquatic organisms such as: 1) the bioavailability of environment chemicals to aquatic organisms, with particular focus on the speciation and bioavailability of copper to marine organisms; 2) the development and application of biomarker tools to evaluate the effects of pollution exposure; 3) monitoring the biological effects of on shore and offshore produced water discharges in the marine environment, 4) The application of bioassays for risk assessment of environmental chemicals, 5) Stress effects of physiological parameters in crustacean.
