Special fields

Professor in mammalogy. Research primarily related to Arctic marine mammals, in particular polar bears, walrus and bowhead whales. The studies are management oriented and related to movement patterns and distribution of populations. Many of the studies have been related to effects of pollution in the marine environment. In later years the research has an increased focus on genetic analyses of ancient and contemporary tissue samples in order to assess population structure. The research has also been related to studies of systematics of terrestrial carnivores by application of craniometrical methods. Since 2014 I have been PI of projects investigating effects of mining activity on redlisted mammals (e.g. jaguars and tapirs) in the Amazon.
