Research Interests

I am interested in how individual differences in traits and life histories arise and influence ecological and evolutionary processes. My main approach to investigate these issues is demographic modeling (e.g. using matrix models and integral projection models) and analyses of long-term individual-based data.  I am an associate editor in Functional Ecology (2017-) and subject editor in Oikos (2015-), and was previously an associate editor in Animal Conservation (2013-2016).

Some general questions I am interested in are

  • How does intraspecific trait variation shape population and community dynamics?
  • Are changes in the mean or variability of environmental variables more important for species responses to climate change?
  • How do populations respond to extreme climatic events, and can they adapt to changing frequencies of such events?
  • How does individual heterogeneity affect important outcomes of host-parasite dynamics?

I am PI on the project ECOVAR (funded by the Research Council of Norway 2015-2019), where we study the impacts of short-term fluctuations on different levels (physiology, individuals, populations, and communities).  Several colleagues and collaborators are involved  in this project. 

From 2013-2016 I was the PI on another project investigating climate change consequences in size-structured populations, using unique long-term data from two freshwater fish species (brown trout from lake Mjøsa, Norway; and pike from lake Windermere, UK).  In collaboration with colleagues at CEES and elsewhere I  developed and analysed size-structured population models for these populations to look at consequences of external impacts such as climate change and harvesting.  We also developed size-structured models to investigate the roles of size-dependent cannibalism and competition.
