About ME


My name is Malin Olofsson and I received my Phd in Marine Sciences at the University of Gothenburg (Sweden) in June 2018.

I am currently employed as a Post doc in collaboration between the Swedish Agricultural University (Uppsala, SE) and the University of Georgia (Athens, US). In this project I will be at UGA between 2019-2021 and SLU 2021-2022.

My research interests are within phytoplankton ecology and nutrient fluxes. During my PhD I used secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) to look at single cell assimilation in diatoms, cyanobacteria and dinoflagellates (See publications). Currently I focus on phytoplankton-bacterial interaction where I quantify metabolites transferred to the bacteria using metabolomics (NMR) and transcriptomics.

Outside of work I love spending time with my family (husband and two kids) and outdoor activities.
