I am a community ecologist interested in how natural and human drivers affect populations, communities and ecosystems at different spatial and temporal scales. My research fall into three broad categories;

  • How do dispersal and niche processes interact to shape the patterns in diversity that we observe in nature?
  • How does environmental change affect various aspects of plant regeneration, and how do these effects scale across levels of organization from physiology via populations to communities?
  • What are the effects of human land-use regimes, past and present, on terrestrial ecosystems?

I study these topics by a combination of of laboratory experiments, field experiments, and field observations. Through my own research projects and collaborations in Norway, Europe, the US, Uganda, Nepal and China I get the opportunity to explore these questions in different regions, study systems, and by using different methods.

I can offer PhD, Msc, and bacherlor's projectsin connection to most of my research projects.

I have also worked with nature management and conservation authorities and the UNESCO-recognised Heathland Centre at Lygra to explore the ecological effect – conservation implication links of my research.

I teach the following courses:

BIO 262 - Norwegian Nature (Field course, lectures in vegetation ecology and biogeography)

BIO 199/299 - Research experience

 

BIO 102 - Organismal biology (Field course)

 

I can offer PhD, Msc, and bacherlor's projects (BIO 199/299) in connection to most of my research projects.
