Works with

My ecological interest is biodiversity and food webs. I’m an ecologist/ethologist with experience in crabs and lobsters in coastal waters. I was involved in crustacean neurology biology, ecology and sea ranching and lately, marine ecosystem management in national (marine management plan-related) and international settings (ICES WGLMEBP, WGINOR, WGIBAR and WGECO, and ADGBY and ADGFBI from 2016) and the Hjort Centre for Marine Ecosystem Dynamics.  I’m also involved in ICG COBAM-OSPAR and in discussions for future collaboration with the US NOAA. I am co-chair in a working group for the European Marine Board, looking at experiences of marine Citizen Science, to make advises for best practice in this field (2016).

I am participating in publishing Indiseas 2 papers on indicators testing for ecosystem assessment, impacts from climate and fisheries, as well as changing impacts of fisheries on social and economic development on a global scale). I was participant in the EU-funded PartiSEApate 2012-2014 (marine spatial planning in the Baltic Sea), LEAR 1997-1999 (Lobster Ecology and Recruitment) and the EEA project “Public participation in the MSP in Poland 2014-2016", and are part of the expert group involved in the Russian-Norwegian Environmental Commission.

Beside, I'm involved in development of a scientist-student collaboration with the Norwegian primary- to high school level (project leader for "Life at the Seashore" project), institute contact and responsible for WP 7 of the BioCEED, Centre for Excellent Education in Biology (since 2015) and accept invitations for lectures to college- and university students as well as public lectures. Since 2016, I'm part of the advisory board for the IMR "Marine Research School". I also convened the 9th Conference and Workshop on Lobster Biology and Management in Bergen 2011 (www.imr.no/icwl_bergen)
