Researchers at Kristineberg

Below you can find the researchers stationed at Kristineberg or who are regularly involved in projects at the centre.

IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute

Maria Granberg

Senior researcher who works with the presence and effects of pollutants, such as oil and microplastics, in temperate and Arctic marine ecosystems.

Anna-Sara Krång

Senior researcher in marine ecology/ecotoxicology. Works broadly on the impacts of pollutants such as microplastics, heavy metals and underwater noise on marine life, particularly crustaceans and other invertebrates. Also works with development of sustainable marine aquaculture.

Maria Asplund
Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences

My research focuses mainly on shallow vegetation systems linked to climate change. I also work with national monitoring of vegetation-covered seabeds along the Swedish west coast.

Matz Berggren
Department of Marine Sciences

I am interested in the biodiversity and habitat choice of eumalacostraca crustacea. My focus has been on different habitat-dwelling shrimps in the tropics! Depending on the environment, different methods are needed. I work with different questions of intimate associations of shrimps and its host animal.

Leon Green
Department of Biological & Environmental Sciences

I'm interested in ecology and evolution in changing marine environments. My research focus is on invasive species, and how ecology and evolutionary knowledge can support invasive species management.

Martin Hassellöv
Department of Marine Sciences

I lead the research group on marine environmental nanochemistry, studying marine pollution in its solid form, from nanometer scale to the ecosystem level. The marine environment is subjected today to multiple stressors, including ocean acidification, climate change, overfishing and pollution.

Eduardo Infantes
Department of Biological & Environmental Sciences

My research group at the Seagrass Ecology Lab examines bio-physical interactions that affect benthic ecosystems with key projects focusing on coastal restoration, ecological feedbacks, tipping points and plant-sediment-flow interactions.

Karin Mattsson
Department of Marine Sciences

I am a researcher in the marine environmental nanochemistry group and work with anthropogenic particles including micro- and nanoplastics particles. I am interested in methods for identifying and characterizing particles in the environment but also sources and distribution as well as plastic fragmentation and degradation processes.

Ellen Schagerström
Department of Biological & Environmental Sciences

My research area is aquaculture. My specialty and focus is breeding and rearing the native red sea cucumber Parastichopus tremulus. I also have an ecosystem restoration angle on my sea cucumber research. My aim is to produce and re-stock this local population in Gullmar Fjord, in order to determine the importance of sea cucumbers in a fjord ecosystem.

Linda Svanberg
Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences

I work as research technician in different projects, for example in a plankton monitoring program where I measure primary production and identify zooplankton. I also work in different projects where I help run experiments and cultures. The focus right now is on lobsters and sea cucumbers, and sustainable aquaculture with said species.

Elena Tamarit Castro
Department of Earth Sciences

As a PhD student I do experimental work with Atlantic cod and climate change stressors.

Peter Tiselius
Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences

As a professor in marine zooplankton ecology, I work on predator prey-interactions in plankton, physical-biological coupling and food web dynamics in the pelagic environment.
