Research interests

My research interests have for the last 15 years been focused on the impact of modern biotechnologies, especially genetically modified organisms (GMOs) on experimental model systems and on real food-webs. I have been particularly interested in risk assessment and effect studies that test products of modern biotechnologies. With cooperating partners, we have used multiple model systems available for research: from microorganisms to Daphnia magna to insects and mammals, both in the laboratory and in the field. A particular focus has been on the food quality and ecotoxicity of GM plants (e.g. Bt-maize and Roundup Ready soy) in a feeding model using the waterflea Daphnia magna, also in combination with chemical stressors (herbicides). At present my research focuses on the ecological impact of aquaculture on wild salmonids. I also have great interest in gene flow, modeling, evolution, biodiversity, ecological interactions and invasion biology.
