About me


I am an ecologist with a broad background in zoology and marine biology, with a special interest in seabirds. My focus is in the field of conservation biology, and I am particularly interested in the effects of environmental changes on the foraging ecology, population dynamics, physiology and phenology of seabirds. I have worked with both tropical and cold-temperate species, particularly focussing on southern rockhopper penguins on the Falkland Islands and lately Antarctic fulmarine petrels and northern fulmars.

Under News you will mostly find blog-entries about my work, e.g. latest scientific articles explained in laymen terms, travels to do fieldwork or visit conferences including photos, but some blogs also cover more general aspects about sustainability and climate change.

If you want to get in touch, drop me an email. My current affiliation and email-address are below.
