Professor (Evolutionary Ecology Unit, Department of Biology), Lund University

I am an evoutionary biologist, interested in the interface between ecology and evolution. I work as a full professor at the Department of Biology (Lund University, Sweden).

I am particularly interested in the maintenance of genetic variation and biodiversity by frequency-dependent processes, natural and sexual selection in the natural populations, genetic polymorphisms, speciation processes, animal colouration and phenotypic plasticity. I employ a variety of different research approaches, including field work, laboratory experiments, population and quantitative genetics, mathematical modelling and molecular, genomic and bioinformatic approaches.

My main study organisms are insects, in particular the order Odonata (dragonflies and damselflies), although I have also worked with birds and reptiles (lizards). I have done field work in Europe, North, Central and South America, Asia and Africa.

I am also interested in science policy, the interface between science and society (e. g. public health) and relationship between science, scientists and politics.
