I am a PhD student at the University of Copenhagen. My research interest focuses on biological oceanography and phytoplankton physiology. Work I’ve done spanned many aspects of phytoplankton research: physiology, ecophysiology and biochemistry of microalge including stress response to phosphorus limitation, thermal stress and biotechnological potential. Currently I am investigating the impact of multiple environmental stressors (global warming, eutrophication, pollution and ocean acidification) on harmful algal blooms. The main focus is on the relation between mixotrophy and toxin production in toxic microalgae and their effect on the marine food web, aquaculture, fisheries and public health. Furthermore, I am applying my scientific knowledge for the development of public policy tools for water management. In my free time I contribute to scientific communication and science popularization.
