Dr Trine Dalkvist
Dr. Trine Dalkvist is an environmental modeller with profound experience in Agent-Based Modelling (ABM). She obtained her B.S and M. S. degrees from Bioscience, Aarhus University, Denmark in biology and ecotoxicology, respectively. Her Ph.D. was awarded from Roskilde University, Denmark where she examined the utility of ABMs within the field of ecology and ecological risk assessments. Since June 2012 she has been working as a Post Doc in the Department of Environmental Toxicology at Eawag (Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology). Major research interests are the mode of action of nanoparticles as well as the identification of mechanistic links of physiological, ecological and behavioural properties of animals and effects of xenobiotic.
