Max Lindmark
Hello! I am a researcher in marine fish and fisheries ecology at the Institute of Marine Research in Lysekil.


In my research I use spatiotemporal statistical and mathematical models to understand the impacts of warming on the body growth and size of fish.

Aug 2014-Sep 2015 
MRes Applied Marine and Fisheries Ecology (Distinction), University of Aberdeen

BSc Biology (2:1 equivalent), University of Gothenburg, Sweden. Majority of courses completed with pass with special distinction
