Conducts research in population genetics, conservation genetics and ancient DNA.
My general research interests are focused on the use of DNA technology to investigate the ecology and evolution of different species, and how past environmental changes have determined the distribution and abundance of organisms. At present, the work we are doing in Stockholm is aimed at investigating how genetic variation, population structure and population size have changed over time, especially in the context of changes in climate during the Late Pleistocene (i.e. the last ice age). We are currently working on several projects on different vertebrate animals, for example lemmings, mammoths, cave lions and ptarmigan, using ancient DNA technology to access genetic information from fossils.
