Current Masters students

Hanif Kawousi
MSc student 2022-2024
I will use object-oriented programming to create a model depicting evolution in songbirds experiencing fear and hunger. By doing this, I wish to investigate the mechanisms behind emotional stressors and better understand how this can affect the songbird’s evolutionary trajectory. Supervisors: Sergey Budaev and Jarl Giske.
Kristian Rørhus Fjell
MSc student 2023-2025
I will study the gravitational carbon flux in different parts of the North Atlantic by applying machine learning to videos of sinking particles and marine snow.
Supervisors: Christian Lindemann with Webjørn Melle and Ketil Malde (both at Institute of Marine Research).
Frida Wickmann
MSc student 2022-2024
I study biodiversity, ecology, and evolution. I am interested in how biotic and abiotic factors structure life history, physiology, and behavior in marine organisms. Supervisors: Andrea Campos-Candela and Christian Jørgensen.
