Personal profile


What I work with

My research covers several aspects of insect ecology and in particular the role of chemical signals (odours) in the life of insects. Both basic questions (how? and why?) and more applied (how to use the knowledge in practice, e.g., in pest control?) are addressed within a number of projects dealing with several insect groups.

I am teaching at basic as well as advanced courses and supervise students at different levels. Currently I take part in department administration as head of the research unit Functional Zoology and chairman of the infrastructure group.

My background

I was born in Tärnaby, Lapland, but have lived in Scania most of my life. I got my undergraduate and doctoral education at Lund University and defended my PhD thesis "Reproduction and competition in the spruce bark beetle Ips typographus" 1988, with Jan Löfqvist as supervisor. In 2003 I was appointed professor of chemical ecology.
