    Personal profile


    I am generally interested in nature with a great fascination for biodiversity. In my spare time, I like to go out and bird watch and ring long-eared owls, catch butterflies or look for new mushrooms.

    Most of my research is devoted to waterfowl. Millions of ducklings in Sweden and around Europe are farmed and released each year for hunting purposes. During my time as a doctoral student (2010-2015), I studied how these releases affected the wild mallard population. farmed ducks differ from wild ones in terms of behavior, morphology, and genetics. During my post-doc, I continued to study the effects of released ducks. Among other things, how do releases affect biodiversity in the wetlands where they are released? In addition to inventorying the wetlands for birds and amphibians, we also analyzed the water chemistry in the wetlands.


    The majority of my service at Kristianstad University is devoted to teaching, primarily in the programme of landscape science. The courses are mostly focused on ecology, species knowledge within fauna and fungi, as well as statistics. I also supervise thesis work.
