Ida-Maja Hassellöv

Professor at Mechanics and Maritime Sciences, Division of Maritime Studies

Ida-Maja Hassellöv holds a PhD in Marine Chemistry from the University of Gothenburg and since 2008 she applies her broad natural scientific background to assess the impact of shipping on the marine environment.

Her research stretches from ecotoxicological studies of different waste streams from ships, via perturbation of natural biogeochemical processes by mixing of water in shipping lanes, to valuation of environmental impact from shipping in terms of degradation of ecosystem services.

One topic of special interest is environmental impact of the exhaust abatement techniques sea water scrubbing. Another research topic where Ida-Maja is active is risk assessment of polluting shipwrecks and marine dumpsites. Most of her research projects are characterized by inter- and transdisciplinary approaches, allowing for efficient utilization of results and contribution to evidence-based decision making.
