About Me

I obtained my bachelor’s degree and MSc from Københavns Universitet (Denmark). My masters degree is in marine biology, where I specialized in protists. After graduating I became intrigued by how computers can be used as a tool for biologists, and taught myself programming in R and Python.
I am based at Cardiff University (UK).

My Project

Life in planktonic greenhouses; a systems dynamics approach – in this project, simulations are run exploring the ecophysiology of  endosymbiotic Specialist Non-Constitutive Mixoplankton (eSNCM). These are protists that harbour living symbionts that can photosynthesize within their single cell such as the ubiquitous Radiolarians
