Forskning

Although I have a background in tropical ecology and nature conservation through a degree at Wageningen University, I moved on via the temperate zone through gaining a phd in mammal ecology from Royal Holloway, University of London, to the subarctic zone where I am currently based. I am particularly interested in nature conservation and ecosystem ecology, with a special interest in predator-prey relationships, meta-populations and interactions between taxa and their environment. I currently work on a project, lead by Christer Nilsson and Roland Jansson, aiming to understand how future climate change may shape and affect the ecosystems in The Barents Region.

The threat of a changing climate has been recognised as one of the main drivers behind (future) extinctions. Its predicted impact is thought to be large scale and capable of affecting entire ecosystems. Especially the high latitude regions in the northern hemisphere are expected to be affected to a large extent. In response of the expected climate change and subsequent effects on biodiversity we aim to assess the current possibility of existing protected areas in the Barents Region to safeguard their current biodiversity under different climate change scenarios.

Furthermore, part of my time I work at the Department of Wildlife, Fish and Environmental Studies at the Swedish University for Agricultural Sciences (SLU). As part of the FOREST BIOCORE group, I work within the RESTORE project ‘and focus on the impact of boreal forest restoration on species (e.g. the white-backed woodpecker, bats) and species communities, in the context of future climate change.
