Microbial ecology of permafrost and glacier surface associated bacteria is the main area of my arctic research. I believe that microbial ecology can only be described properly using combinations of molecular methods, biogeochemical techniques and classical microbiology. I have used significant amount of energy on quantification of nucleic acids directly extracted from environmental samples, and I have worked with different methods to directly quantify mRNA. These techniques are being applied in the projects that I’ve been able to raise funding for in arctic including co-PI for CENPERM I and several projects on microbial communities on the surface of the Greenlandic IceSheet. This work is a part of larger collaborative projects, and I have often taken the initiative to these collaborative projects and served as centre leader.
