Subjects for teaching
Mainly teaching in Soil Science, Local conditions and Plant ecology.
My main research interests are nutrient and carbon dynamics in plant-soil systems. In particular I study the contribution of organic matter and fine roots to these processes in forest and urban soils.
I have a master’s degree in Forestry with a major in soil science (2002) from SLU and a PhD in Plant ecology and systematics (2007) from Lund University. My Thesis subject was: Nutrient and Organic Matter Dynamics in Beech Forest Floors in Relation to the Presence of Ground Flora.
After defending my doctoral thesis I was working at INRA, Bordeaux, France for two years. Here I studied production and turnover of field vegetation biomass below and above ground in Pine forests in the south west of France. Discussing the important contribution of filed vegetation to the carbon and nutrient dynamics in the forest ecosystems. This work was followed by JSPS scholarship to Kyoto University, Japan. Here I studied production, turnover and activity of mycorrhiza in the Japanese oak forests.
Since 2013 I'm working at SLU, Alnarp, Landscape architecture, planning and management.
