About

My PhD project focus on tropical rainforest biodiversity, restoration and tree species life history traits in Sabah, Borneo. In my Master project I studied how mammal community composition change as a result of people and livestock moving into an area, in Botswana. I hold a high interest in biodiversity and sustainable development, as well as human culture. In addition to my biology major I have studied e.g. land-use change, multivariate stats and environmental psychology. I have also previously worked with sustainable forest management at FAO and crop wild relatives at CIGARs Bioversity International. I am a curious person with a taste for adventure, and with excellent skills in verbal and written communication. I aim to work towards a more sustainable human society, linking science, policy and local communities. I will passionately apply my expertise in work towards a more resilient and equal world.
