I'm fascinated by how animals cope with difficult challenges.

The underlying causes of the challenges experienced by animals may vary considerably. Sometimes they are natural (e.g. seasonality), while in other cases, they are directly or indirectly created by human (e.g. climate change or situations that arise in hunting / fishing and farming). However, how their bodies responds to a challenge that is perceived as potentially disruptive or threatening is remarkably similar, regardless of the cause.


In my research, I try linking ecology, ethology and physiology to understand how animals deal with difficult challenges and try to assess how various challenges affect their health and welfare.

Right now I am working within FRESH which is a FORMAS-funded project aimed at increasing knowledge about fish welfare in aquaculture.
