A backbone of my research has always been the ongoing long-term study of great reed warblers that we have carried out at lake Kvismaren since 1983. Over the years we have explored many questions including sexual selection, mating systems, adaptive sex ratios, territory quality, dispersal, inbreeding and outbreeding costs. A great benefit of this population study is that we started to collect blood samples already in 1987 which has allowed us to reconstruct a pedigree of the birds that span more than 20 generations.

My present research is centered in the field of Molecular Ecology with projects including population genetics and genomics of migratory song birds and host-parasite evolution of avian malaria parasites. In these studies I make use of a diversity of molecular techniques including transciptome and whole genome sequencing.
