Initially planned to start 1st of April, now started 1st of July, after three months delay. Finally we known the diatom experiment in 14°C, 20°C, and 28°C, using Thalassiosira pseudonana together with Ruegeria pomeroyi. It will later on be exciting receiving data on endo- and … Continue readingDiatom experiment is up and running
After months at home, except for monitoring of algal cultures, UGA is now in phase 1 opening stage. This includes masks, frequent hand and surface sanitation, and staggered lab schedules. Anyways, its great to be back!

We are currently running an experiment where we have diatoms together with three different bacterial taxa to look at metabolites (NMR) and RNA expression over time.
We have now moved to Athens in Georgia (US) for me to conduct a 2-year post doc focusing on phytoplankton-bacteria interactions. We are all very excited for this adventure and look forward to exciting times. The kids will learn English and go to public school … Continue readingMoved to Athens in Georgia (US)
I am a phytoplankton ecologist currently stationed as a post doc in Athens (Georgia, US). Herein you will find updates on my previous and current research focusing on phytoplankton of all different kinds and a diversity of settings.
