Hello! I am a PhD student in marine ecology at the Institute of Coastal Research in Öregrund since January 2016. Interested in fisheries ecology. From Gothenburg, currently adapting to life on the Baltic coast. I enjoy cycling long distances, and thinking about cycling long distances.


Variation in performance of differently sized individuals is a widespread but overlooked aspect of size in population ecology. Moreover, warming can alter this size-dependence of performance through interactive effects of size and temperature for individual rates, such as metabolism.

In my research I focus on how individual-level rates scale with temperature and body mass, and importantly, how that shapes structure and dynamics of animal populations and communities.

I work within the framework of physiologically structured population models and stage-structured biomass models, linking individual level process to population level phenomena via food-, size- and temperature-dependent growth. Using these models we can mechanistically capture how interactions between and within species modulate the effects of increasing temperatures on community structure.
