Om mig


Research interest

I am broadly interested in the ecology and evolution of species interactions. I currently aim to combine experimental, theoretical and molecular techniques to study interkingdom interactions between plants, microbes and insects. For this, I have worked extensively on the spatial dynamics of the insect and pathogen community on the pedunculate oak (Quercus robur) and the below- and aboveground food web surrounding the plant Plantago lanceolata. I am currently expanding my research to the semi-wild coffee in SW Ethiopia, and started to explore new study systems associated with Sweden’s perennial plants. Overall, I am broadly interested how ecological and evolutionary interactions between plants, insects and microbes play out in a spatial setting.


For more information and publications:

I am coordinating the course Biological Statistics III (7.5 ECTS) in early winter (December / January). In spring I co-organize the course Interactions in Ecological Communities (15 ECTS) and lecture in the course Molecular Plant-Microbe Interactions.
Master students
If you are looking for a master project, I would be happy to suggest or supervise projects on a broad range of topics related to plants, microbes and insects. Please feel free to send me an informal email or walk into my office.
