Knowledge areas

I am a community and ecosystem ecologist, working as a research scientist at Norwegian Institute for Nature Research, Oslo, Norway. I'm also an adjunct professor in ecology and evolutionary biology. I study species and community level responses to environmental change - habitat loss and fragmentation, and climate change – and the consequences of these responses for ecosystem processes such as the carbon cycle. My most recent projects, ForBioFunCtioN (PI) and EcoForest (partner), address the effects of climate change and management on the forest ecosystem biodiversity, and carbon budget - through changes in forest communities and their functioning. My other main projects deal with trait-mediated fungal community assembly, biodiversity scenarios under different climate change and forest management scenarios, effects of forest fragmentation on genetic variation in fungi, fungal translocations, barriers of ecosystem-based forest management, rainforest restoration in Brazil and the Norwegian Red List of threatened species.
