I am a Swedish wetland scientist, and environmental consultant with several first-author publications in peatland restoration. I will defending a PhD-thesis on the topic in early 2014. My research focus is the effects on functional diversity during peatland restoration, and how this can help in tailor restoration projects. I regularly act as a reviewer for scientific journals, and have experience in teaching peatland restoration.
