About

I was organically made, born and raised in the capital of the Faroe Islands, Tórshavn. I always have had an interest in animals and living things, so it became more and more clear that I wanted to pursue a biology career. My interest has however become more refined, and I hope to be working with environmental pollution issues in the future, and potentially look at marine birds as bioindicators/models for productivity and pollution of the marine environment.

Outside of the strictly academic context I care about nature conservation in particular in the Faroes, and try to be openminded towards different ways of living ecologically sustainable. I blog on www.faroenature.net.

Being a christian in natural sciences also has its obvious challenges. This is something that has interested me for a while, and I co-founded a small organisation which works to examine the apparent conflicts: www.dialogos.fo. We have a very well visited blog and podcast. Recently the main topic has been how christian faith can and ought to inform the current environmental challenges.
