Staff profile

Magnus Nyström is Associate professor and Senior Lecturer for the centre


He also shares the leadership of the theme Governance and ecosystem management of coastal and marine systems at the centre.

His research is focused on the effects from human interventions, such as climate change, overfishing (including trade) and pollution, on ecosystem functions and processes - and how this impacts on resilience in ecological and social-ecological systems.

The research also embraces identifying information gaps and developing resilience as a conceptual and operational framework to guide conservation and management activities.

His work has primarily been conducted in Southeast Asia, Eastern Africa, and the Caribbean. Magnus is the leader of a group of coral reef scientists working on related issues.

Close collaborators include several researchers from James Cook University Australia, among others.
