Early Stage Researcher

MSc, PhD student in the Environmental Ecology Research Group


My work aims to determine whether the process of pant domestication may have affected plant volatile responses to (i) feeding from a specialist herbivore; (ii) elevated ozone; (iii) both stresses sequentially. It also examines whether volatile-mediated plant-plant interactions are more effective in wild than cultivated varieties and evaluates whether herbivore-induced volatiles affect defence, growth and reproduction of receiver plants.

Teaching Activities

I have been teaching in the Chemical Ecology course for master students in the autumn semesters 2019 and 2021.

Societal Activities

I have great interests in gardening, foraging for wild plants, and herbalism. I am part of a non-profit organisation implementing urban permaculture gardens that boosts biodiversity in the town of Uppsala and provides locals with fresh and nutritious fruits and vegetables (www.ultunapermakultur.com).

Research groups and research projects

Volatile-mediated plant communication in wild and cultivated plants. Archived project: Comparions between defense-inducing treatments to protect conifer seedlings against the pine weevil Hylobius abietis.
