I am a Senior Research Scientist in the Department of Terrestrial Ecology at the Norwegian Institute for Nature Research (2017 to present).  My research interests are in population ecology, conservation biology, and wildlife management.  I have worked in arctic, alpine, and grassland ecosystems with migratory shorebirds, grouse, and grassland birds. I enjoy working 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.
