    Research interests

    Michaela Aschan is Professor in Fisheries Biology and Management at UiT, the Arctic University of Norway, and has a Ph.D. in Ecology from the University of Helsinki, including additional training in statistics, geography and philosophy. She has served as the Vice Dan with responsibility for science activities at the Faculty of Biosciences, Fisheries and Economics. This involves science strategic planning at the UiT level, overall responsibility for the PhD-education programme at the Faculty as a central role in the Faculty lead. This experience has given her leadership opportunities and training as well as the opportunity to assemble multidisciplinary teams for solving new scientific challenges. Her research covers a wide range of scientific areas including stock assessment and population biology of shellfish; fish and benthic communities; sampling design; bio-economic aspects of fisheries regulation and management; and climate induced changes in the marine ecosystem. She has wide experience from national projects, EU projects, other international projects as well as ICES Working Group leadership and participation and Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification.
