Key qualifications
My main research activity has been in population ecology, lifehistory adaptions and genetical structures of populations. Research has focused on ecological theory and includes a variety of animals (especially birds) both in terrestrial and marine environment. Most studies have been carried out in arctic and subarctic areas and I have also been involved in population studies on birds in the Antarctic. During recent years I have also studied the relationships between organochlorine contaminations and its effect on life history traits in Glaucous Gulls in the arctic.
