    I have taught at BSc and MSc level since the mid-90's. Currently, I am "pilot" for Bio-2010 (Marine Ecology) and I also teach on Bio-3516 (Foodwebs and fisheries; co-pilot) and Bio-3031 (a lab exercise).

    Earlier teaching includes being course leader for the MSc courses "Production and Growth in Polar Areas" and "Experimental design in Marine Biology".
