I hold a PhD in Plant Ecology from the Department of Biology, UiB, finished in 2009. I am currently working at the Department of Geography and part of the Development Geography and Environment and Landscape Geography Research Groups.

 

My research focuses on the dynamics in coupled human and natural systems, including natural resource management, agro-biodiversity, sustainable land use, ecosystem services, and food security. I work with colleagues across the social and natural sciences to elucidate links between anthropogenic activities and the environment, in Europe, as well as in Asia, North-America and Africa. These interests build on to my seeking to gain multifaceted knowledge within ecology and associated disciplines; in addition to a PhD in ecology I have completed a minor in Social Anthropology, and the cross-disciplinary courses Ecology and Development and Resource Management and Environmental Conservation.

 

Additionally, I have taken part in several collaborative multidisciplinary research and education activities:

 1)       Scientific coordinator for the Nile Basin Research Programme 2009 (www.nile.uib.no) - working group on Biodiversity and Land Use Change, Uni Research.

 2)       Scientific coordinator of Bergen Summer Research School 2013 (www.uib.no/rs/bsrs) – organizing PhD courses on Food as a Global Development Challenge for 70 students, UiB Global.

 3)       The NOMA Programme 2010-2014, Regional Master Program in Biodiversity and Environmental Management, lectured three cohorts and supervised 6 Master students.

 4)       Member of the Norwegian Scientific Committee on Food Safety (VKM)
