Address: Department of Phanerogamic Botany, Swedish Museum of Natural History,
P. O. Box 50007, SE-104 05 Stockholm, Sweden
Education: Ph D (2003, Stockholm University)
Research interests: Phylogeny of the Lycopod family Selaginellaceae. Phylogeny of the tree fern clade, including the families Cyatheaceae, Dicksoniaceae, Metaxyaceae, Lophosoriaceae, Loxomataceae, Hymenophyllopsidaceae, and Plagiogyriaceae.

I hold from February 2004, a two-year postdoc position at Duke University, Durham, NC, USA, and the Swedish Museum of Natural History, Stockholm, Sweden. The project concerns the major phylogenetic relationships within the tree fern clade. This well supported clade of leptosporangiate ferns includes the families Cyatheaceae, Dicksoniaceae, Metaxyaceae, Lophosoriaceae, Loxomataceae, Hymenophyllopsidaceae, and Plagiogyriaceae.
I collaborate with Dr. Kathleen Pryer (Duke University, www.pryerlab.net) and Dr. Harald Schneider (Georg-August-University Göttingen, Germany) as well as Dr. David Conant (Lyndon State College, Vermont, USA)
