I'm doing my PhD within Environmental Science in the multidiciplinary research project Land4Biomass, a project focusing on the challenges and opportunities linked to production of agricultural biomass for bioenergy in Sweden. My contribution to the project involves intregrated data analysis of marginal or abandoned land to assess the current potential of plant based biomass production by using remote-sensing, GIS and field work. I will also work with assessment of biodiversity and ecosystem services on local and landscape level to estimate the impacts of bioenergy-related land use changes. I have my study background in Physical Geography, Biology and Environmental Science (Lund University and University of Gothenburg).
