Dr. Lindgren is Professor Emeritus in the Ecosystem Science and Management Program at UNBC. A bug-nerd from an early age, he grew up in northern Sweden in a forestry-dominated community, which naturally led to a career in forest entomology. His academic training started in Sweden, but it was Dr. John Borden at Simon Fraser University who provided the guidance that eventually landed Staffan at UNBC. Staffan has broad interests in forest insect ecology and management. His training is in applied chemical ecology, but over the last decades he has primarily focused on research in forest insect community ecology and insect-plant interactions.
