Research Interests

I am interested in the evolution and systematics of Hymenoptera and at the moment I am involved several projects on poorly known sawflies and parasitic wasps with a strong focus on the Northern European fauna. We are making taxonomic revisions based on phylogenetic trees and illustrated identification keys.

I am becoming increasingly interested in the history of entomology in Scandinavia and study entomologists that have been important for Hymenoptera research.
