    Forskningsinteresser

    My research focuses on the ecotoxicology, ecological physiology and endocrinology of free-living avian and mammal species. I am particularly interested in the physiological and biological effects of contaminants (persistent organic pollutants, mercury, microplastics) in Arctic species exposed to multiple stressors.
