I am interested in the spatial ecology and community composition of benthic habitats in the Nordic Seas. I use visual data collected by AUVs and ROVs to explore the distribution and relationships occuring within and between habitats.
My PhD focused on understanding the biodiversity and spatial ecology of arctic sponge grounds and other megabenthic communities on an arctic seamount through the use of imagery collected from AUVs and ROVs.
I am a researcher with 5+ years of experience using novel image analysis, habitat mapping, and benthic sampling techniques to study and monitor changes in seafloor communities. Since 2017, I have been using various software and methods to analyse images of benthic communities, where my main focus was investigating and characterising communities on an Arctic seamount. I have participated in 5 multi-day research cruises since 2018 as a biologist and video analyst. I have experience in multi-variate analysis and GIS mapping.
