MSc Marine Biology
Mathilda works to a large extent with public consultations and environmental impact assessments focusing on offshore wind power. The work includes data collection, GIS-processing, statistical analyses, and report writing.
Mathilda has a master’s degree in Marine Biology from 2020 at Stockholm University and a bachelor’s degree in Marine Biology from 2018. In her master thesis, which consisted of a Minor Field Study (SIDA), she investigated coral reef associated fish feeding behaviour in seaweed beds and seagrass meadows, evaluated these habitats importance as foraging areas and how far coral reef fish were willing to swim to reach these habitats. She has experience of ecotoxicology by participating in studies aiming to evaluate Thin-capping technique to remediate contaminated sediments. She also has experience in conservation work with manta rays (Mobula alfredi) at Ningaloo reef, Australia, where she evaluated their occurrence and use of the Marine protected area. Mathilda’s degree includes courses such as: Baltic sea ecosystem: Applications, Modelling and Management, Marine populations and ecosystem dynamics, Ecotoxicology, Aquatic ecology, and Management of aquatic resources in the tropics.
