I am interested in how variation in selection pressures forms spatial and temporal patterns in life-history traits of animal populations. I work on adaptation along climatic gradients, human-induced environmental stress such as altered climate and pollutants and harvest-induced evolution in exploited marine species.
I am a senior researcher at the Coastal Zone Research Team in Ekenäs, Finland, and have strong bonds to the Department of Ecology, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) in Uppsala. I am also honorary member of staff at School of Environmental Sciences at University of Stirling, Scotland.
