CV

Education:

2011-2015: 4-year PhD degree in biology at UiT. PhD thesis: Cyclically outbreaking geometrid moths in sub-arctic mountain birch forest: the organization and impacts of their interactions with animal communities. 

2009 - 2010: 2-year Master's degree in biology at UiT (Study programme: "Northern populations and ecosystems").

Master's thesis: "Phenological diversity in the interactions between a spring-feeding geometrid and its larval parasitoids" 

2006 - 2008: 3-year Bachelor's degree in Biology at UiT.

Interesser

General reserach interests:

  • Population cycles
  • Causes and consequences of insect outbreaks
  • Host-parasitoid interactions
  • The role of phenology in ecological interactions
  • Community eceology

My Postdoc is part of the project "What comes after the new pest? Ecosystem transitions following insect pest outbreaks induced by climate change in the European high North". This project aims to increase the understanding of the ecosystem consequences of forest mortality following severe outbreaks of geometrid moths in sub-arctic mountain birch forest. As a postdoc in the project, I have a particular responsibility for collecting and analyzing data on the responses of passerine birds and sproxylic (dead wood-dependent) beetles to outbreak-induced forest damage.
