Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I am a postdoctoral fellow with broad interests across evolutionary ecology, currently working on the link between individual variation in responses to stresses and the population-level impacts of those stresses. How do various ecological influences and between-individual differences combine to affect the performance and fitness of wild organisms? What does this mean for the success of individuals and for the growth of populations made up of these variable individuals?

In my current project, funded by an independent grant from Svenska Kulturfonden, I am linking between-individual variability in host responses to parasitism with the population-level consequences of infection in structured natural populations experiencing increasingly unpredictable environmental conditions. Will climate change alter the way that hosts respond to infection? Will these changes affect all members of a population equally? What will the likely consequences be for that population – will it persist or go extinct? And what about other populations that are structured differently or experience a different environment?

I am answering these questions using field data, lab experiments and theoretical modelling in the three-spined stickleback, a common small fish in the Baltic Sea that is frequently infected by the cestode parasite Schistocephalus solidus. The ultimate aim of the project is to develop a real-world picture of how population structure and differences between individuals in those populations determine the impact of parasitism on population viability in a human-altered environment.
