My research focuses on contaminant levels and effects in Arctic mammals, seals, Arctic foxes and polar bears. I’m interested about how ecological and climate-driven factors affect time- and geographical trends of contaminants. On contaminant effect side, I’m particularly interested on integrating different research fields including physiology, ecology, molecular biology and chemistry to understand how multiple stressors (contaminants and changing climate) affect Arctic animals.
