James Reeve

I am PhD-student in marine evolutionary biology. I'm studying inverted segments of the common periwinkle (Littorina saxatilis) genome, for their possible role in creating new species. My research involves field work, DNA analysis and theoretical simulations.
Supervisor: Kerstin Johannesson.

Environmental Science

Johanna Elam

Doctoral student in an interdisciplinary research project on identifying the extent to which wood pilings in Gothenburg’s clay soil may become infested by mould fungus and bacteria when the surrounding conditions change.

Marine Sciences

Alex Cabral Dos Santos

I am interested in the biogeochemical processes of coastal and oceanic ecosystems and how they function under natural and anthropogenic conditions.
Supervisor: Isaac Santos.

Adele Maciute

I am highly interested in the ecology of the most abundant, diverse and yet vastly understudied aquatic organisms collectively termed as meiofauna. Thus, the goal of my PhD project is to investigate and quantify the contribution of these ubiquitous organisms to marine sediment functioning, namely nutrient cycling and benthic metabolism.
Supervisor: Stefano Bonaglia.

Milad Pourdanandeh

I'm a PhD-student in marine chemical ecology within the Signals in the Sea research group, with Erik Selander as main supervisor. I'm interested in general zooplankton-phytoplankton interactions but I primarily study induced phytoplankton defencive traits when exposed to chemical cues from copepods.
Supervisor: Erik Selander.
