My research focuses on the study of population dynamics in marine shellfish and fish, and their assessment to provide fisheries advice. I am particularly interested in the ecological and environmental processes that drive changes in population size and structure and the consequences of these dynamics for stock assessment estimates and fisheries management. My current work includes the assessment of data-limited shellfish stocks, notably brown crab, Iceland scallops, Nephrops and Northern shrimp. Furthermore, I'm involved in projects to explore the impact of unaccounted fishing mortality and variation in natural mortality on stock estimates and uncertainty. As researcher in the benthic resources unit at IMR, I’m responsible for the Norwegian stocks of brown crab and common whelk.
