Adrian Gustafson

Postdoctoral researcher

Lund University

Adrian Gustafson is a Researcher at the Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science at Lund University. He gained his BSc in Conservation biology from Göteborg University. However, his interest in large spatial patterns and modelling drove him to study Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science as an MSc. He later finished his PhD in Environmental Science at Lund University in 2022. In the PhD thesis, Adrian worked with large-scale dynamic ecosystem models, and coupled vegetation-climate models applied over the Arctic. Since then he has worked on merging dynamic and machine-learning models into hybrid models for improved predictions of tree mortality with subsequent effects on carbon budgets and forest structure.
