Personal profile

Research interests

I am an archaeobotanist with an interest in all types of landscape archaeology. My main interest is foremost within socio-ecological processes, that is how nature and culture has adapted to each other over long periods of time.

I mostly work with palynological data, but I also use macrofossils, spatial data, and archaeological data. My area of expertice lays within northern Europe and I have mostly worked within a timeframe of c. 2000 BCE - 2000 CE.

Description of research and teaching

Currently analysing pollen from the Åland Islands and the Scandinavian inland to investigate resilience and adaptations in periods of crises at geographically peripheral areas during the Late Iron Age and mediaeval period in the North
