Spatial phenomena,
Ecosystem modelling


I am working on a wide range of biogeographical phenomena.
Recently I have been working on modelling of vegetation dynamics (especially migration) wildfires, invasive species, phenology and human population dynamics.


I have been teaching a wide variety of courses at both bachelor as well as master level mainly in the fields of:
Ecosystem Analyses
Spatial Statistics
Greenhouse Gases
Ecosystem Modelling
Global Change


I am currently employed 50% by Lunds University at the Institute of physical Geography and Ecosystem Science and 50% at EJT in Sundsvall. I am also a visiting sientist at the Institute for Forest Snow and Landscape in Zürich. 

In my work I am combining vegetation modelling at a corse scale, (Countries - Europe - the World), with field work at a landscape scale. I am currently performing field studies on Svalbard, Öland, and on another island in the Baltic Kieler Ort where I analyse the spread of an invasive species.
