Background

Peter took his PhD in Ecological Climatology and Distribution Modelling in collaboration with NHM and MetOs in the LATICE project. He graduated with an MSc in Ecology and Environmental Sustainability, University of Aberdeen in Scotland and holds a BSc in Nature Protection and Landscape Management, University of Zilina, Slovakia. As part of his education, he took an exchange year at Telemark University College, where he participated in an Alpine Ecology study program.

Teaching

  • Distribution modelling (BIOS5211)
  • Introduction in surveying, photogrammetry and spatial analysis (GEG2250)
  • Norwegian nature (BIOS4120)
  • Ecological Climatology (GEO9915)
