I am a zooarchaeologist, specialising in the study of sub-fossil bird bone remains. My research is focuses on looking at long-term patterns in Northern European avifauna, in particular Norway. The purpose of my research is to further our understanding of birds in the past by investigating both biological and archaeological questions, looking at reasons behind range shifts, population changes, species introductions and extinctions. My most recent work has focused on bird remains from Norwegian archaeological sites dating to the Medieval period, and is currently in the process of publication.
