Background and activities

I am a PhD candidate working on the project 'Evolution in a Changing Climate' (EVOCLIM), where we ask the question: how are populations able to adapt to a changing environment? Using a unique set of long-term studies on European hole-nesting passerines, I explore how population demography and phenotypic selection, both in a context of density dependence, vary in space and along ecological gradients.

I am also involved in:

  • Hole-Nesting Birds Network and Database, an initiative to create a community-defined, standardized method for formatting data on hole-nesting passerines making it much easier to exchange data and ideas within the network.
  • sTraitChange, a sDiv collaborative project with the focus on: how do trait responses to climate change translate into demographic rates and population dynamics?

I have participated in the organization of two conferences in Trondheim:
