I am an associated professor in biology, teaching environmental science and education at the department of life sciences at Södertörn University. I am responsible for our courses in statistics, ecology, conservation biology, prospective preschool teacher and high school teacher education in science.

My main research interest is in plant ecology and environmental science. I am currently involved in a project analysing the effect landscape characters on plant biodiversity in forests around the Baltic Sea. This is a collaboration with Kari Lehtilä and Tiina Vinter. I am also working together with Börje Ekstam at the Linneus University in two different projects assessing effects of reconstructions of wetlands in southern Sweden. We are mainly interested in recolonisation patterns of the flora following reconstructions. A third research area were I am active is plant demography. It started with demographic analysis of Sea plantains Plantago maritima to elucidate the effect of intra-genomic conflicts on sex ratios in natural populations. From there I moved to population viability analyses of rare species which I am still working with.

Earlier work also involves: butterfly distributions in patchy landscapes, local adaptation in plants and spatial distribution of livestock parasites in farmlands.
