Looking for a post doc in demographic modeling

 

Research Interests

I am interested in how individual variation in traits and life histories arise and influence ecological and evolutionary processes. My main approach to investigate these questions is demographic modeling (in particular matrix models and integral projection models) and analyses of long-term individual-based data.

Some of the questions I am interested in are

  • How does intraspecific trait variation affect biological processes in populations and communities?
  • How is the demographic variance of a species determined by life history?
  • How will changing variability of environmental variables modify species responses to climate change?
  • How can species adapt to rapidly changing environments?

I am an associate editor in Functional Ecology and subject editor in Oikos (previously associate editor in 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 lead 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).  

PhD students

  • Chloé R. Nater (CEES, UiO): Chloé uses statistical analyses and integral projection models to investigate the joint consequences of climate change and harvesting in the "Hunder trout", a large population of Brown trout in the lake Mjøsa where unique long-term data has been recorded.
  • 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 affects the ecological dynamics and evolution of life history traits in fish communities.
