About Åsa Arrhenius

My research background is in environmental science with a focus on ecotoxicology and the effects of mixtures or so-called chemical cocktails. I have worked mainly with microbial communities, but also single species tests with algae and bacteria. I have studied the effects of many different types of pollutants, such as biocides, pesticides, drugs and biocides, individually but mainly in different mixtures.

My daily work is varied, for now I have the following main tasks;

1. Head of department biological and environental sciences.

2. Coordinator for the FRAM Center for Chemical Risk Analysis and Management of the Future ( FRAM is a multi-disciplinary academic research centre focusing on chemical mixtures and how chemical pollution affects human health and the environment.
