About me:

I started my career in arctic biology as a graduate student and continued my work as an employee at the Norwegian Polar Institute. I received my M.Sc. in marine zoology at the University of Tromsø in 1998 on a thesis describing population parameters of bearded seals (Erignathus barbatus), and my Dr. Philos-degree in 2013 on polar bear (Ursus maritimus) population biology and anthropogenic threats. My main area of interest is arctic marine mammal ecology and human impact on populations and most of the research I have been involved in since 1995 has involved polar bears and other marine mammals in the Barents Sea region.
