I work with ecological and evolutionary aspects of conservation biology with a particular focus on butterflies and moths. I also have a strong interest in butterfly and moth diversity in the agricultural landscape and the relation between land management and diversity patterns.

Using historical data, I collaborate with Swedish and German colleagues to explore nationwide colonization patterns of Swedish Lepidopterans and relate these to species-specific traits
