Academic interests

I am here at CEES to work on the administrative part of two collaborative projects. The first project will take advantage of the knowledge created during the 10 years of CEES in a book on the interface between ecology and evolution. The second project is related to the work being done in CEES on the red queen hypothesis.

My background is in mycological phylogenetics from Blindern and the Natural History Museum at Tøyen where I have worked on phylogeography within some fungal species complexes.
