Julie Koch Sheard, ph.d.
PostDoc at Center for Macroecology, Evolution and Climate, Copenhagen University


I am currently a postdoc at the Center for Macroecology, Evolution and Climate, at the Globe Institute at University of Copenhagen, advised by Professor Carsten Rahbek.

I am an ecologist interested in biogeography, conservation, invasion biology and citizen science.

When I’m not doing research I like to pretend I have an artistic streak by painting, playing the piano, writing non-science (nonsense). I like to attempt to make things grow and spend time outside.
