Dag Olav Hessen is a biologist with major interests in food web ecology and “ecological stoichiometry” in aquatic food-webs. He works at the newly started Centre for Biogeochemistry in the Anthropocene (CBA), an interdisciplinary center consisting of talented employees from the Department of Geosciences, the Department of Biosciences and the Department of Chemistry at the University of Oslo. The centre works to assess and predict changes in global carbon cycling by integrating research at various scales from the molecular level to organisms, catchments, and up to regions.
