The work I did in my previous postdoc on genetic monitoring of wolf pack dynamics through a citizen science initiative is published! Read the open access paper in BMC Ecology.
Another postdoc paper - on inter- and intra-specific segregation in seabirds is accepted in Ibis and will be online soon.
I work at the University of Helsinki in Ulrika Candolin's lab, independently funded by Svenska Kulturfonden. My current project investigates the changing role of parasitism in natural populations under climate change. Will climate change alter the way that hosts respond to infection? Will these changes affect all members of a population equally? What will the likely consequences be for that population – will it persist or go extinct? And what about other populations that are structured differently or experience a different environment?
I am addressing these questions using field data, lab experiments and theoretical modelling in the three-spined stickleback, a small fish common in the Baltic Sea that is frequently infected by the cestode parasite Schistocephalus solidus. Ultimately, I aim to develop a real-world picture of how population structure and differences between individuals in those populations determine the impact of parasitism on population viability in a human-altered environment.
