My current research focus on the effects of nanomaterials in aquatic ecosystems. Main focus is on plastic nanoparticles and identifying sublethal responses related to different exposure scenarios. I study how nanoplastics can affect different trophic levels in aquatic ecosystems from algal growth to movement patterns of zooplankton and fish. To answer these questions, I combine small scale laboratory experiments with large scale experiments in semi natural environments.

 

Previous research has also focused on induced defense compromises in zooplankton in response to multiple threats from ultraviolet radiation and predation and how these threats affects their migratory behavior. In order to study zooplankton behavior at the individual level we developed a unique tracking system where we follow the animals by labelling them using fluorescent nanoparticles, so called quatum dots.
