I am a seabird ecologist working with seabird monitoring on Hornøya in Northern Norway. My main research interest are how the marine environment, climate and various anthropogenic effects are affecting seabirds demography and population dynamic, and how seabirds are adapting to a changing world. Recently I've also started to study how and why kittiwakes are becoming more and more urbanized. The species I'm working with are common and brünnich guillemots, puffins, razorbills, black-legged kittiwakes, herring gulls, great black-back gulls and shag.
