My main interest is the biogeochemical cycling of nutrients in the Baltic Sea. I have started with modeling the long-term dynamics of nutrients and phytoplankton in the Gulf of Riga and found that the balance between nitrogen and phosphorus pools is crucial for the structure of its pelagic ecosystem.

Currently I am using the Baltsem model to analyze the causes of regime shifts in the Central Baltic Sea, looking how changes in hydrology further impact nutrient fluxes and primary productivity.

For the future, I am also dreaming about a two-way coupling between biogeochemical models and pelagic foodwebs in the Baltic.
