I am a Bachelor in Biology student at Nord University. I am currently writing my bachelor thesis about the morphological differences within the species of three-spined stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus) and nine-spined stickleback (Pungitius pungitius), according to their habitats and salinity levels.

I have always been fascinated by marine ecology, the way different animals adapted to their environments and filled in niches to be able to coexist with other organisms. Seeing how those big mechanisms work and understanding them.

​My future plans are to get into a master study program that is heavily involved in marine ecology and hopefully do a research on parasites and how they affect the behaviour of their hosts.
