    Research interests

    I have a strong interest in community ecology, biodiversity and population dynamics of benthic and sea ice-associated fauna. My research also focuses on coupling processes between the benthic, pelagic and sea ice realms in the Arctic through trophic interactions and life cycles. I am also interested in regional and pan-Arctic  integration and biophysical linkages.
