My research interests lie mostly at the interface between behavioral ecology - in particular movement ecology - and conservation biology. I am particularly interested in the effect of anthropogenic development on species' spatial behavior, habitat use and landscape permeability. Currently, I am working on new approaches to identify animal movement/migration corridors. I am also interested in human-wildlife conflicts, and in approaches to support adaptive management and sustainable development.
My work is conducted mainly within a large project based on GPS-monitored wild mountain reindeer and other species (e.g. moose) in Norway.
I am currently leading the RenewableReindeer project (NFR-funded), and contributing to Toppforsk, ProdChange, AdMan and other projects
