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

  • How do local and regional processes interact to shape the patterns in diversity, abundance and function that we observe in nature?
  • How does environmental changes affect plants, and how do these effects scale across levels of organization from individuals via populations to communities?
  • What are the impacts 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, China, and Peru 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 projects in connection to most of my research projects.

I have also worked with nature management and conservation authorities in Norway,  with IPBES, and the UNESCO-recognised Heathland Centre at Lygra to explore science-policy links relating to my research.

I teach the following courses:

 

BIO 199/299 - Research experience

 

 

I can offer PhD, Msc, and bacherlor's projects (BIO299) in connection to most of my research projects.
