Vice Dean at the Faculty of Arts and Humanities.

I am Director of The Environmental Archaeology Lab, a research, development, consultancy and education infrastructure actively involved in archaeology 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 concept and scope of the database and includes the use of biological proxies, particularly fossil insects, to reconstruct past 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, as well as the broader adoption of FAIR principles for open data access.

More recently I have become interested in research concerning the adaptation of cultural heritage to climate change, and am working with the Swedish Transport Authority and private companies to push these issues.

I am a Fellow of The Royal Entomological Society and active in a number of national and international organisations.

For contract archaeology see the websites for The Environmental Archaeology Lab and Research Consultancy.
