My aim is to improve our understanding the biogeochemical cycling of contaminants in the environment. My focus is on both atmospheric and marine cycling and uptake into the food web and I use a combination of field-based and modeling approaches in my work. Currently I primarily work on mercury cycling, interaction with organic matter and bioaccumulation in coastal sea environments – like the Baltic Sea – but I am also involved in projects on Arctic mercury cycling and biogeochemical cycling of selenium.
