My latest research project – Meet your wild neighbours – was featured on Swedish national television (TV4). You can see the item here (in Swedish).
Meet your wild neighbours is a citizen science project, which means that everyone can participate. We invite inhabitants of Umeå municipality to borrow a camera trap from SLU (Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences) to put it up in on their property. In that way, we hope to get a better view of which animals live in our municipality and how people think about these animals.
You can find more information about the project and a way to participate here (in Swedish).
I just had my first day in the field for my new job as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. Although my work will mainly consist of analysing consisting datasets, I am also collecting new data. Most of the work is done my research assistants, but sometimes I get the opportunity to join them in the field!
