Bent Christensen

Where are you from? 
Denmark, but I grew up in Africa 
 
How did you get interested in animals and ecology? 
I have no recollection of a life not being interested in animals and ecology, and how stuff works. I was kind of born into it. Also, from a career point of view, I was very much better at thinking than I was at building houses or fixing machines. 
 
What is your current research area?  
I am starting a project that will study how to use natural predators to decrease the density of disease vectors, that is insects spreading diseases to humans. Corona har kind of stopped that project, but now that we are opening up again, it might be possible to start the project. 

What would you like to do in the future? 
I do not have any specific wishes for the future, apart from being able to do what I do today. I really like doing it!  
 
For fun: was there anything you were scared of as a little kid? 
Yes, I was afraid of dentists. 
 
Did you have any favorite animal?   
More or less any animal.
