Kort presentation

Detta stycke finns inte på svenska, därför visas den engelska versionen.

My research focus lies within the field of environmental science with emphasis on impacts of human activities including sewage and pharmaceuticals, harbors, fishing and habitat destruction. I study the effects through populations genetic patterns on different geographical places, scales, levels and using different techniques.
