I am an ecosystem scientist studying the interactions between biotic and abiotic components of the Earth System. I have in recent years become increasingly interested in the role large mammals play in shaping their own physical, chemical and biological environments, i.e. as ecosystem engineers. As I also want to make a difference outside academia, I have started collaborations with groups in Oxford (UK), Aarhus and Copenhagen (DK) to reveal the potential of megafauna rewilding for conserving and restoring biodiversity without compromising climate change mitigation goals.
