Postdoc

I pursue research in areas of ecology including plant- & plant community ecology, botany and horticulture to provide innovative research on semi-natural herbacoeus vegetation for urban environments.

 

Fields of interest

Biodiversity (species, habitats, genetic variation) in wildgrowing plants and cultivars

Botany, morphology and plant systematics

Plant- and plant community Ecology

Vegetation description and analysis

Plant-pollinator interactions

Ecosystem services

Sustainable urban development 

Current research

1. Sustainable and innovative methods for supporting biodiversity on fertile and productive soils. Research in habitat restoration techniques and genetic variation in commercially available seeds and their wild relatives. (Grant from 15. Juni Fonden)

2. Optimising ecosystem services and recreational values of low maintenance SUDS in urban environments.  (Grant from VUDP)

3. Cover crops – low resource requiring management of the young forest.  (Grant From GBHF)
