Reasearch / work
I have a Ph.D. in Environmental Science, more specifically Marine ecotoxicology. My ecotoxicological research addressed effects of toxic compounds foremost on different types of microbial communities. I have also worked within the areas of microbial ecology, metagenomics and bioinformatics. Now I am a group leader at the Gothenburg Centre for Sustainable Development. This position involves e.g. developing analysis and tools for sustainable development and being the Network Manager for Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) Northern Europe.
