Current research

PI for the Dynamics of Arctic Ecosystems group, a part of Community Dynamics at CBD. PI for the project "Community dynamics in a rapidly warming high Arctic: trophic synchrony in time and space (INSYNC)", financed by the Research Council Norway (FRIPRO program) for the period 2018-2021. The goal is to explore how climate change shapes spatial and temporal community dynamics - across species and trophic levels - on the high Arctic Svalbard tundra. Project partners include Univ. Groningen, Univ. Aberdeen, Univ. Iceland, CNRS Montpellier, Norwegian Meteorological Institute, University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS). Follow the project on twitter @BrageBH, youtube and ResearchGate.
