Ecologist with expertise in northern populations and ecosystems, in particular plant-herbivore interactions in sub-arctic birch forests and the forest-tundra ecotone. Among my main interests are studies of the spatio-temporal dynamics of outbreaking geometrid moth species, and the effects of insect outbreaks on forest ecosystems. I am an experienced used of GIS and remote sensing in population and landscape studies.

Main scientific experience covers population and habitat ecology of small mammals in boreal forests and mountain ecosystems. Applied research and consultancy work includes studies and assessments of boreal forest ecology, protected areas, ecological effects of agriculture and forestry on species and ecosystems, environmental impact assessments of infrastructure development projects, as well as assessments, indicators and monitoring of terrestrial biodiversity.
Main administrative experience covers management of NINA's research department in Oslo over > 25 yrs, as well as coordination of terrestrial ecosystem monitoring and major research projects and programmes on boreal forests or cultural landscapes.
