Welcome

SAB-1883

I am an early-career scientist interested in global change ecology. My research focusses on plant and landscape ecology in the Arctic tundra. Currently, you can find me at Aarhus University (Denmark) where I am a postdoc working with Signe Normand.

In November 2018, I defended my PhD at the University of Edinburgh (Scotland, UK) for which I used satellites, drones and ground-based observations to better understand the processes that govern tundra vegetation change, working in the Tundra Ecology Lab (Team Shrub) with Isla Myers-Smith, Ally Phillimore and Richard Ennos.

Over the past years, I have organised and taken part in multiple expeditions to the Arctic, including the Yukon Territory, Canada and Svalbard, Norway.

I am an experienced drone pilot with many flight hours in remote environments. In summer 2018, I helped establish the drone-monitoring programme for the Climate-ecological Observatory for Arctic Tundra (COAT) at the Norwegian Polar Insitute with Virve Ravolainen and I have been an active member of the High Latitude Drone Ecology Network (HiLDEN) since its inception.

I enjoy teaching and communicating science. For many years, I volunteered in environmental education of primary school children and throughout my PhD I have been tutoring and demonstrating at the University of Edinburgh, including the Geoscience Outreach course, for which I supervised science outreach projects of final year undergraduate students.
