Research Interests

I am interested in how individual variation in traits and life histories arise and influence ecological and evolutionary processes. I develop and analyse mathematical models (in particular matrix models and integral projection models) with application to observational and experimental data from different study systems.

Some of the questions I am interested in are

  • How does intraspecific trait variation affect population and community dynamics?
  • How does short-term fluctuations in environmental variables modify species responses to climate change?
  • How is the demographic variance of a species determined by life history?
  • How does host trait variation affect outcomes of host-parasite dynamics?

I am associate editor in Functional Ecology (previously in Oikos and Animal Conservation), and a member of the science committee for the demographic databases COMPADRE and COMADRE.

Research projects

I am currently PI on the project ECOVAR (funded by the Research Council of Norway 2015-2019), where we study effects of short-term fluctuations in environmental variables at different levels (physiology, individuals, populations, and communities).  I also participate in the projects SUSTAIN and MULTICLIM.  From 2013-2016 I was leader of the the RCN-funded project ClimateIPM, where we used integral projection models to study consequences of climate change in two freshwater fish populations (brown trout from lake Mjøsa, Norway; and pike from lake Windermere, UK).  

Master students:

  • Anine Siqveland: Life history effects of fluctuating food level in Daphnia magna
  • Anna Olsson: Life history effects of fluctuating temperature in Daphnia magna
  • Øyvind Svensen:  Effects of predictable versus unpredictable environmental variation on Daphnia magna
  • Rasmi Kunwar: Effects of maternal age and calorie restriction on offspring life history responses in Daphnia magna

PhD candidates

  • Catharina Broch (CEES, UiO): Catharina combines demographic modeling and experimental lab studies of the zooplankter Daphnia magna, to investigate consequences of changing thermal variability at different biological levels.
  • Marlene W. Stubberud (CEES, UiO; cosupervisor): Marlene develops two-sex integral projection models to investigate the consequences of selective harvesting in a changing environment.
  • Viktor Thunell (SLU AQUA, Sweden; cosupervisor): Viktor uses structured models to study how fishing and climate change jointly affect the ecological and evolutionary in fish communities.
