MY RESEARCH

I work on photosynthesis, the basis of almost all life on earth, arguably the most important process in biology. I’ve studied photosynthesis in all kinds of aquatic plants, from the tiniest microscopic phytoplankton right up to three metre-tall mangrove trees.

EXAMPLES OF RESEARCH PROJECTS

My two current research areas are (i) photosynthesis in Arctic sea ice algae; and (ii) photosynthetic carbon assimilation in wetland plants and its importance for ensuring that restored wetlands are net sinks for greenhouse gases, offsetting climate change. 

IMPORTANT METHODS AND RESULTS

Measuring photosynthesis in sea ice algae is very difficult, and we have been studying them using advanced chlorophyll fluorescence methods. Our work in wetlands uses special high-resolution greenhouse gas analysers: Read more: * | Carlsbergfondet

COLLABORATION

Polar science projects are always interdisciplinary and international, and in the Arctic we collaborate with oceanographers, microbiologists, physicists and molecular biologists from New Zealand, Australia, Germany and Norway. In our wetland science, we have been key players in several international, interdisciplinary projects. Read more: MoorWissen | Paludiculture| Projects | Cinderella
