About my project

In my PhD project, I am exploring stakeholder attitudes towards ecosystem services produced in the agricultural landscape. Further, I am studying the possibilities of using measures with multiple benefits that provide both private goods, such as food and fibre, and public goods, such as conservation of biodiversity and prevention of eutrophication, as well as contribute to socio-economic sustainability of rural areas.

I am interested in the ways in which we can manage the agricultural landscape to create a sustainable agriculture where the food supply, as well as other goods, is sustained.

About me

I have a BSc in Biology and a MSc in Conservation Biology from Lund University. During my Bachelor studies, I became interested in agriculture and how it affects biodiversity and ecosystem services. In my degree project, I studied how farming practices and landscape complexity affects pollination of turnip rape (Brassica rapa ssp oleifera). When I during my master degree went on exchange studies to University of Washington I took the opportunity to broaden my perception of conservation biology and environmental science, and studied courses where these topics where analysed in light of sociology, ethics, and conflict management. Back at Lund University I pursued my master thesis with a Meta-Analysis to explore potential effects of the CAP 2013 greening measures on pollination and bio-control.
