I am project coordinator for the Swedish Programme for Contaminants in Marine Biota (fish, mussels, and bird eggs).
I am interested in understanding the spatial and temporal distribution of contaminants, specifically mercury, selenium and PFAS, in aquatic environments. My research focusses on the Baltic Sea and the Arctic.
- Tools for investigating spatio-temporal variability of contaminants in Baltic Sea biota. This project is funded by Formas (2022-2024) and is a collaboration between researchers from the Swedish Museum of Natural History, the Swedish University of Agricultural Science, and Stockholm University. Yosr Ammar works as a postdoc on the project.
- Deciphering processes controlling the methylmercury burden in oxygen deficient coastal seas. The project is funded by Formas (2019-2021) and is a collaboration between researchers from Umeå university, Uppsala university, Linnéuniversitet and the Swedish Museum of Natural History.
