About me

My bachelor’s degree is in Forestry and Wildlife Management. Afterwards I obtained a master’s degree in Sustainable Forest and Nature Management (SUFONAMA). The first and second year of my master’s degree was at the University of Copenhagen and Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) respectively.

My master’s thesis focused on simulating different management alternatives for growing birch and Norway spruce mixtures in southern Sweden. I have also worked as a research assistant in summer 2022 before being admitted to PhD studies at SLU, Alnarp.

About my research project

My PhD study is focused on the silviculture and management of planted birch within the boreal biome. We will be investigating competition in spruce and birch mixed stands, as well as effective thinning strategies for birch monocultures. We will be providing height development curves and basal area growth functions for planted birch. In spring 2023, we are setting up new birch experiments to tackle relevant research questions in birch management.
