My interests are biodiversity, nature conservation, landscape ecology and green structure planning in rural, peri-urban and urban landscapes. The development of multifunctional green infrastructure - with focus on biodiversity, recreation, aesthetics and cultural heritage – is another topic that has been important to me.
In my research I have worked with issues concerning biodiversity and landscape ecology and in particular with butterflies. The development and planning of (multifunctional) green structure has been another topic that I have studied (in interdisciplinary research groups).
Ongoing research project (participant): VivaPlan
Project recently finished (participant): BiodiverCity, where I investigate butterflies and bumblebees in green structures - including green roofs - in Malmö.
