Current tasks

I work as a project scientist in the Marine Ecosystem Activities and Modelling group. My current tasks include circular economy related research and co-operation with stakeholders.


I did my MSc in limnology and PhD in hydrobiology. In my PhD and post-doc work I studied the fast- and drift ice communities and the effects of UV on the sea ice ecology in the Baltic Sea. Since 2015 I have been doing research related to circular economy.
