Research interests:

My main interests lie in the molecular ecology and evolution of various organisms. I have a special focus on Arctic protists, and am currently working on the diversity and functioning of marine Arctic picoeukaryotes in the Svalbard waters.

Previous research and interests are in the fields of chloroplast evolution, molecular systematics, plant evolution in relation to climate shifts, phylogeography, and the life history adaptations and genetic consequences of protists and plants to life on the edge.

Research projects:

MicroFUN: Investigation of the the biodiversity and function of terrestrial and marine microbial eukaryotes in Svalbard.
