Jeg arbeider med 0-gruppe fisk (årets yngel) i Barentshavet. Jeg beregner mengdeindekser for 0-gruppe fisk av 11 fiskearter og 6 fiskefamilier, i tillegg beregner jeg også biomasser av 0-gruppe fisk (torsk, hyse, sild og lodde), kril og maneter.
Jeg studerer romlige variasjoner av mengde av fisk, krill og maneter i forhold til temperatur og deres predatorer.
Jeg er fosrkningskoordinator for Økotokt i Barentshavet og har en lang erfaring med toktaktivitet som både prøvetaker, toktleder og toktkoordinator.
