PhD, Marine ecology
Snorre is a PhD-student in marine molecular ecology tasked with understanding what some of the smallest invertebrates in the Barents Sea feed on. To do so, Snorre samples zooplankton as well as meiofauna, and use DNA metabarcoding to describe the in situ prey species composition of their guts. Since the Arctic is a region of extreme environmental fluctuations, Snorre also aims to relate feeding with seasonal and spatial dynamics, and especially with variability in prey.
