I completed my PhD in 2014 at the Institute for Bioscience – Zoophysiology, Aarhus University (Denmark), with a secondment at the College of Aquaculture and Fisheries, Can Tho University (Vietnam). After my PhD I attained a Post-doc position at the Marine Science Institute, University of Texas at Austin (United States). In 2017 I moved to a Post-doc position at the Department of Chemistry and Bioscience – Section for Environmental Technology, Aalborg University (Denmark).
I am interested in the responses of fish and crustacean species to acute and chronic changes in water temperature, dissolved oxygen, salinity and pH (i.e., ocean acidification), and how changes in physiology and behaviour at organism level translate into changes at population and ecosystem levels. I study the functions responsible for shaping abiotic niche boundaries and optimising performance within these boundaries. I want to know why some species thrive under conditions where other species succumb and the mechanisms underlying these differences.
