Extrapolation of ecotoxicological effects in a changing climate

Project: PhD

Project Details


During my master studies on Aquatic Ecology at Lund University I have specialized in ecotoxicology, thus my master thesis focused on "the direct and indirect effects of nanoplastics in Daphnia magna under natural conditions with a mesocosm approach". From there, my passion developed towards the study of toxicity under realistic conditions. Therefore, I am really excited to work as a PhD student at the Aquatic Ecology and Water Quality Management Group (AEW), specifically at the Chemical Stress Ecology sub-group, under the supervision of Paul van den Brink. Where I will carried out the PhD project titled "Extrapolation of ecotoxicological effects in a changing climate" as part of the EU funded QTOX project. This project will aim to determine the robustness of approaches for extrapolation of chemical toxicity in the context of climate change scenarios in central and southern Europe. This will be done by looking at the combined effects of pollutants and different stressors related to climate change on the aquatic environment with the use of mesocosms.
