I am interested in the anthropogenic causes of contemporary evolution, in particular I studied fisheries-induced evolution with guppies and medaka as model species.

Currently, I evaluate the cost of life-history adaptations on multiple traits at the University of Bergen with selected lines of guppies and the ecological consequences of such adaptations in medaka.

Former projects involved studying the effect of eutrophication and inbreeding due to habitat destruction on mating and parental care behaviour in the sand goby and the least killifish at Åbo Akademi and at the University of Helsinki, respectively.
