Professional interests

My main research interests are the ecological
implications
of introduced species and how these introductions affect native species and communities.
In my PhD-thesis, I am studying the trophic
interactions
between native and introduced species in coastal areas of the Baltic Sea as well as identifying spatial and temporal changes in them. I
am also looking more into how the structure
and function of the species communities
is affected by the introduction of
new predatory species. In my research, I am combining quantitative field-based observational
data with qualitative stable isotope and DNA-based methods, as well as
experimental work.
