Knowledge areas

Freshwater mussels and fish, parasites, zooplankton and benthic invertebrates.

Key qualifications

I have extensive experience with research on and monitoring of freshwater mussels in Norway, Canada and the USA. As a part of this work I have also worked with confirmed and potential host fish for these mussels. Therefore, I have gained experience with a variety of freshwater fish, both through experiments and field work. In additiont to working on parasite-host interactions between mussel larvae and fish, I have also worked on evolutionary theories on parasites that castrate their hosts. Specifically, I worked on a bacterium that castrates water fleas (daphnia).
