Academic interests

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.
