About me

I am a researcher in ecology at Stockholm University, Sweden. My research is focused mainly on landscape ecology and species interactions in subarctic and arctic ecosystems, spanning from animals (mammals and arthropods) to vegetation (focusing on pale lichens).

Since May 2023, I lead the “Mountain Tundra Spider Project” - a 4 year research project at the Department of Ecology, Environment and Plant Sciences at Stockholm University, Sweden. The project is funded by FORMAS (a Swedish Research Council for Sustainable Development)

I have previously worked at the Norwegian Institute for Nature Research and the University of Tromsø in Norway. I have also been a visiting reasearcher at the Environmental Change Research Unit at Helsinki University in Finland.
