Major practical experiences cover project management concerning research and monitoring in freshwater (rivers and lakes) and in marine environments (estuarine and coastal waters). Specialization on freshwater biodiversity and water quality. Project leader for several national projects on implementation of the EC Water Framework Directive in Norway: Design of a National Monitoring Network for Reference Sites, Design of a National Network for Surveillance monitoring in freshwaters, Evaluation of methods for monitoring and assessment of freshwaters c.f. the WFD. Experience from international work on standardization of biological methods, and different aspects related to the implementation of the ECC’s Water Framework Directive.
Practical experience covers studies in population studies of waterfowl and seabirds. Involvement in seabird research programmes (monitoring colonies and studies on seabirds at sea), and impact assessment in connection with seabird and oil drilling. I also have some experience in entomological research (ecology and systematics). Ecotoxicology been a central working field in the recent years.

Seabird ecology, arctic biology, ecotoxicology and ecophysiology. Moe is working with questions related to tracking of migration and distributions, energetics, stress, pollutants, life history and climate. Study species: kittiwake, common eider, arctic skua, long-tailed skua, glaucous gull, little auk, lesser black-backed gull, common guillemot, atlantic puffin, European shag, northern fulmar, herring gull, common gull, snow petrel, waders and some terrestrial bird species. Moe cooperates with many scientists from other national and international research institutes.
