I hold a Ph.D. in ecology and are mainly interested in how climate change are affecting the ecosystems. I have worked for many years in arctic and alpine areas where my focus has been herbivore-plant interactions. I also have a strong interest in predator ecology with main focus on wolf biology. Currently my work focus on how land use and land use change affect biodiversity using birds and plants as indicators.

The science of ecology is all about trying to understand the abundance and distribution of organisms. To achieve a higher level of knowledge it is imperative to spend time out in the wild to get a closer look at how your study systems work for real. I spend a lot of time out in arctic and alpine areas to get first hand experience and knowledge about how my research systems work.
