Director of The Environmental Archaeology Lab and the Strategic Environmental Archaeology Database (SEAD), two research infrastructures for archaeology.
I am Director of The Environmental Archaeology Lab, a research, development, consultancy and education infrastructure actively involved in archaeological consultancy throughout Scandinavia. I also run the Strategic Environmental Archaeology Database (SEAD), a research infrastructure for studies on past environmental change, climate change and human activity. My research interests parallel the scope of the database and includes the use of biological proxies, particularly fossil insects, to reconstruct Quaternary environmental and climate change, especially when related to past human activities. I am also interested in the use of palaeoentomology, the study of fossil insects, for the study of past biodiversity, and in relation to modern conservation policy and activities. I co-authored the BugsCEP database and software, and am interested in the development and study of research data infrastructures, in particular the use of big data in archaeology and palaeoecology. I am a Fellow of The Royal Entomological Society.
