I am interested in the ecology of high latitude marine benthic invertebrates, especially during their early life stages. My PhD work focuses on the seasonal distribution of benthic invertebrate larvae and juveniles in the northern Barents Sea. I am using molecular methods to identify the larvae and juveniles which are difficult to identify morphologically and to characterize their diet.
