Inger Maren Rivrud is currently based at the Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis (CEES) at the University of Oslo, where she holds a post doc position. Her research background is in ecology and evolutionary biology, with specialization in spatial ecology and population ecology of large mammals.
Her work has mainly focused on factors affecting behavior and movement patterns of large mammals. Main interests are the effects of environmental and anthropogenic factors on habitat selection, migration patterns and harvesting vulnerability, with a special emphasis on climate effects and consequences of climate change for populations of large mammals.
Recent work has involved large carnivores, looking at the effect of carnivore density on reindeer migration patterns, and environmental effects on the potential for evolutionary change in body size in brown bears.
