Welcome to my website. Here, you can find information about my current and past research, as well as some of my hobbies.
I am an animal ecologist interested in human-wildlife coexistence. I study both the influence of people on wild animals, and the influence that wild animals have on people. Within this framework I work on including non-professionals into monitoring of wildlife. I am also interested in using technology to bring people in contact with nature.
Currently, I work as a researcher at the department of Wildlife, Fish, and Environmental studies of the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Umeå, and I am involved in the work of the Dutch Small Mustelid Foundation.
Next to being a scientist, I am a musician playing in a folk duo, I like to dance, read, and write, and I take the occasional photograph.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
