In my research I have focused on spatial ecology, wildlife management and conservation. I spent many years working on how the establishment of large carnivores (and the wolf in particular) affected local communities, created conflicts but also created curiosity. I have continued to work with human - wildlife interactions, conflicts,  communication and dialogue work. I have for many years worked as an institute leader, assistant dean and dean additional to be an associate professor in applied ecology.    

I have experence in teaching and supervising bachelor's, master's and PhD-students.
