I am a marine biologist and coastal manager interested in species interactions and ecosystem dynamics. I have experience with offshore monitoring and manipulative field and laboratory experiments in the field of behavioural and physiological ecology. I also have a keen interest in ocean and coastal literacy initiatives. 

My ongoing Ph.D. project aims to better understand how climate change-related stressors have been affecting the benthic communities (i.e., organisms that live at the bottom of a body of water), with particular focus on their functional traits and influence on carbon fluxes.

I am a member of the Centre for Coastal Research (CCR) sitting at Norwegian Institute for Water Research (NIVA), Region South.
