Background and activities

Research  I use a phylogenetic approach to studying a range of biological aspects in various groups of plants (e.g. the Lamiaceae) and fungi (incl. lichens), from population to family level. I frequently include archived collections (i.e. herbarium and fungarium specimens) in my research and use recently developed statistical tools for data analysis. 

Scientific collections  I was curator of vascular plants at NTNU University Museum (herbarium TRH) from 2013-2021. Since February 2021, I have been curetor of fungi at NHM, UiO (fungarium O). 

Teaching  I taught botany on the NTNU course BI1002 (Faunistics and Floristics) during the period 2016-2021. I currently teach on the ForBio courses DNA barcoding - from sequences to species and Making and Presenting Scientific Talks.

MSc project in biosystematics / conservation genetics? We offer MSc projects on both plants and fungi.
