I am a Senior Research Scientist in the Department of Terrestrial Ecology at the Norwegian Institute for Nature Research (2017 to present).  I have administrative experience as a project leader for several major research networks and graduate training programs.  My research interests are in population ecology, conservation biology, and wildlife management, and I have worked in arctic, alpine, and grassland ecosystems with migratory shorebirds, grouse, and grassland birds. I have expertise with aspects of quantitative ecology, including vertebrate demography, mark-recapture statistics, and matrix population models.  My projects have included long-term studies of species of conservation concern, and manipulative field experiments to understand the ecological drivers of population dynamics.
