Research

Research interests:
- Climate change impacts on species interactions
- Size-structured population dynamics (e.g. ontogenetic shifts)
- Spatiotemporal population dynamics

Since June 2016 I am a PhD student at the Department of Aquatic Resources in Öregrund. The main topic of my PhD is size structured fish communities’ responses to climate change. To investigate changes in community dynamics due to warmer and browner waters, I will use a combination of data from lake monitoring, mesocosm and aquaria experiments. Furthermore I will use size-structured population models to simulate fish community responses to the combined effects of temperature increase and brownification.

My PhD is funded by the Swedish Research Council FORMAS and by the Department of Aquatic Resources at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences.
