Scientific profile

I am a dedicated marine mammal biologist with a Ph.D. in bioacoustics of toothed whales. I have fifteen years of experience in research and advisory within the field of bioacoustics, underwater noise and health related issues in marine mammals. I am responsible for the Danish monitoring of nutritional health in Danish marine mammals. My main focus is science based advisory work on effects of anthropogenic activities on marine mammals, as well as I conduct research in this field. I am an experienced project leader, as well as field biologist and cruise leader at numerous scientific cruises in Denmark, Greenland and other countries.
