Matilda Andersson


I am an aquatic ecologist interested in the impacts of multiple stressors on predator fish populations. During my PhD I worked in freshwater systems, examining the impacts of warming and browning on Eurasian Perch populations with a focus on how different ecotypes may respond differently to the same stressor. My current research is focused on the Baltic Sea, specifically Marine Protected Areas and long-term trends in pike populations.
