My research focuses upon landscape- and environmental change in time and space and how these changes are influenced of both social and natural factors. Human interference and in particular our use of natural resources is central. I’m interested in how traditional land use has shaped our cultural landscapes and how abandonment of this use interacts with concurrent environmental and climate effects.
