I am a Researcher at ACES and Chair of Stockholm University Young Faculty. I am furthermore Research Area Co-Leader within the Bolin Centre for Climate Research (Research Area: Hydropshere, Cryosphere and Climate)

My aim is to improve our understanding of 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.

I am currently focusing on mercury cycling, interaction with organic matter and bioaccumulation in coastal sea environments – like the Baltic Sea. I am furthermore involved in projects looking at mercury sources to, and transport and transformation within, the Arctic, mercury associated with sea-spray aerosols and biogeochemical cycling of selenium.
