My research is rooted in evolutionary ecology and is unified by the goal of understanding how adaptive and non-adaptive evolutionary processes interact in nature. Research areas range from evolutionary ecology to genomics and focus on topics such as sexual selection, sexual conflict, local adaptation, polymorphism maintenance and population demography. Whenever possible, I employ complementary approaches at the genomic, phenotypic, ecological and environmental level. My research has societal relevance in relation to the diversity crisis, nature conservation, sustainable development, water and wildlife management and global change.
I am employed as an Associate Professor at Lund University in Sweden and as a Senior Scientist at Plant and Food Research in New Zealand.
