My expertise / skills : I have spend most of my research on spatial ecology, modelling and simulations, and running statistical analysis on big monitoring data. I often do landscape ecology focusing on conservation ecology, mainly gis-analysis and analysis of scale dependence on biodiversity in pastures and meadows, and deciduous forests [b,c] but also meta-analysis [c]. I am also interested in designing monitoring programs (assignment for Swedish EPA and county administrative boards), in particular to determine sample size and how to analyse the data. I am currently combining monitoring data of bumblebees diversity and management of field margins/use of neo-nicotinoids/surrounding alternative habitats, in a project for the Swedish Board of Agriculture.

Keywords : landscape, scale, sample design, monitoring, conservation, biodiversity, meta analysis, gis
Project description : I am looking for a broad thematic project, preferably en element of landscape management or how to prioritize between landuse for multiple purposes.
