Overview

Lecturing, responsible instructor and supervisor

I have been lecturing in a total of 34 courses, covering twelve different biological areas, mainly ecological, and been responsible instructor for 24 different courses, held 65 times op to now. As the responsible instructor, I have the official responsibility and managing authority for these courses. This includes, e.g., planning and revising the courses (preparation of course description and instructional plan), lecturing and arranging potential lecturers and arranging examinations. Additionally I have been supervisor for 15 bachelor’s and one master’s project, covering a wide range of biological subjects.

Overview

Research

Faroese rats (Rattus norvegicus). Currently, I am working on Faroese rat.  I collect rats from different places around islands. I have around 160 specimens of the brown rat in my freezer. They are collected from 24 locations on 6 of the 7 islands, where the brown rats live in the Faroes Islands.  Eleven of the islands are free of rats.

At the moment we are working with population genetic on the Faroes rats. The aim of this work is to get answers to the following questions:

     1) Are there genetic differences between rats in different places in the Faroe Islands?

     2) Where did the Faroese rats came from?

Mountain hare (Lepus timidus): Describe the general biology of the Faroese mountains hare.

Running projects: Population size and fluctuation - Population genetics - Hunting statistic - Migration and dispersal - Time of molting. Additional, there are plan for future projects on Food and feeding.

Fish Ecology: My main scientific work has been on fish assemblages on the Faroe Bank. Focus has been on the species composition, spatial and temporal distribution, food and feeding habits of the fish species living on the Bank.I am contributing in a big Nordic project, “Nordic Centre for Research on Marine Ecosystems and Resources under Climate Change” (NorMER).  NorMER brings together expertise of leading research groups from all Nordic countries and several North American institutions, to implement a collective and multidisciplinary research strategy to explore the biological, economic, and management consequences of global climate change on fisheries resources. Currently, we are running 17 PhD and 8 Postdoc projects.

Additionally, the studies have been conducted on genetic structure of the fish population, life-history and the effect of climate change on the distribution patterns of Faroese fish species.

House Sparrow: For some years ago, I studied of the Faroese House Sparrow (Passer domesticus)The study encompasses of the general biology, population size, movement, life-history and population structure.

Population genetics: Studies have been carried on genetic structure of different organism living in and around the Faroe Islands. Investigations have been done on different fish species living on the Faroe Bank, on the Faroese House Sparrow (Passer domesticus), the Faroese house mouse (Mus musculus), Faroese eel (Anguilla Anguilla) as well as the genetic structure and origin of the Faroese people. Currently, I am collecting samples from Faroese rats (Rattus norvegicus) and hares (Lepus timidus), which I the future will be used for genetic analyses.
