PhD fellowship at Institute of Marine Research and enrolled at the University of Bergen, (Nov 2018 - 2021)
My two projects are:
FluoroLice Project. Salmon lice, L. salmonis, is a pervasive aquaculture pest and harmful to wild populations of fish, but estimating infestation risk is impeded by the difficulty of measuring their abundance in situ. I am developing a methodology for rapid identification of planktonic lice using their fluorescence fingerprint.
Nalo Lice Biology. Using mesocosm experiments I will study lice mortality in relation to zooplankton predation.
