Professor Katrine Borgå

As an ecotoxicologist my research focuses on understanding mechanisms and processes for contaminant distribution and accumulation in the environment. This includes the influence of food web ecology, migration, life history traits, and biogeochemistry on (re)distribution of contaminants in the context of a changing climate. 

My research is oriented towards Arctic marine food webs, large lake food webs in Norway and Italy, and terrestrial sub-tropical forest distribution of contaminants. Chemicals of interest include both legacy and emerging contaminants.
