Background and activities
Researcher in population ecology at Centre for Biodiversity Dynamics (CBD)
My research focuses mainly on how spatial and temporal variation in the environment influence individuals and populations. I have in particular looked at how habitat characteristics such as forage availability and quality affect life history traits and habitat selection, and how individual responses to spatio-temporal variation in the environment in the end influence the population. My current research is connected to the Sustain-project, leading a workpackage on spatial structure of populations and ecosystems.
