My research focuses on plant systematics, ethnobotany, molecular identification and DNA barcoding.
I am currently working on two main projects:
- Plant use and migration during the Viking Age
- Market ethnobotany and molecular identification of medicinal plants
My main interest is in people´s negative as well as positive influence on wild plants through use and trade throughout history.
