Background and activities

About me

I am a researcher at the Centre for Biodiversity Dynamics (CBD) and I am part of the Behaviour and Evolution Research group at the department of Biology. I have a wide field of interest within behavioural and evolutionary ecology. You can read about my research group here.

I work both empirically and theoretically to answer questions about how organisms adapt to variable and unpredictable environments. When we improve our understanding of how animals and plants adapt to variable environments we will also be better able to predict how they will cope with a changing environment in the future.

I participate in the Outstanding Academic Fellows programme for talent and career development for your researchers at NTNU. I am also listed among NTNUs expert lists for journalists, and I am happy to answer questions from journalists or others.

Teaching

I am responsible for the course Biodiversity and conservation biology II (BI3082). If you have any questions regarding this course you are welcome to send me an email.
