Personal profile

Research interests

I have a strong interest in ecology and animal welfare. The research conducted as part of my doctoral studies focused on how sandeel (Ammodytes sp.) transfers energy through its position in the Faroe shelf food web, and furthermore, how changing climatic factors, i.e., temperature, influences sandeel negatively, as well as demonstrating how this further affects higher trophic levels. My current work focuses on lumpfish (Cyclopterus lumpus), sea trout (Salmo trutta), pink salmon (Oncorhynchus gorbuscha) and sea lice (Lepeophtheirus salmonis), which allows me to combine fascinating ecological work with the utility of applied research with focus on fish welfare.
