Knut Wiik Vollset
Knut finished his Masters degree in 2006, and PhD in 2010.
He was affiliated with the Theoretical Ecology Group through prof. Øyvind Fiksen, who was his co-supervisor during both Masters and PhD degrees.
- I worked primarily with growth and survival during early life stages of two populations of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) in large outdoor mesocosms. The results contradict some of the earlier findings of population differences.
After finishing his PhD in December 2010, Knut was hired by Uni Environment, to work with wild salmon ecology and the interaction between wild fish and farming and river regulation. More specifically he belongs to the sub-group The Laboratory for Fresh water ecology and inland fisheries.
- Currently, I work as a Senior Researcher and do both field work and publish articles on anthropogenic effects on wild Atlantic salmon and trout .
Knut has published several articles from both his Masters and PhD work. You can find more information about his work here.
