Research Question
How will seafloor ecosystems change as a result of global pressures such as climate change, energy scarcity, or food provision?

As a post-doctoral researcher I am active in two projects where changes to coastal ecosystems are being studied as a result of melting of glacial and sea ice. TANGO is focused on the Antarctic, whereas CANOE is focused on fjord systems in Greenland. Another project I am active in is OUTFLOW, where we are looking at the effects of offshore wind farm operations on carbon cycling on local, and extended spatial scales.
