I am interested in the functionality of plants in their ecosystems, especially in interaction with herbivores, and how plants and plant communities transform under climate change. I am also interested in what promotes biodiversity and how plant and ecosystem functionality is linked to biodiversity. Projects that I am currently involved in are;
MONEC - To manage or not: assessing the benefit of managing ecosystem disservices
COAT - Climate-ecological Observatory for Arctic Tundra
ECOGEN - Ecosystem change and species persistence over time: a genome-based approach
I am a plant ecologist with experience from ecosystems in alpine and arctic ecosystems such as in Norway, the Canadian Arctic, Svalbard and the Alps.
