My general research interest is genetic and ecological responses to different environments. I am especially interested in studying evolutionary processes, phenotypic plasticity, local adaptation and speciation. During my PhD, I studied the ecological and genetic variation of Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus) morphs, which can live in different habitats in a lake. I am currently working as a postdoctoral researcher at Nord University as a part of the Landscape Genomics Group.
I am studying the genomic basis of temperature adaptation in ecotypes of the marine snail (Littorina saxatilis) in different geographical locations. Genomic and experimental approaches will be combined to study temperature adaptation of L. saxatilis.
