Peter specializes in the intersection between evolution and sustainability with topics including emerging pests and pathogens (including resistance evolution), sustainable development, global environmental change and the evolution and sustainability in and of the Anthropocene.

At Stockholm Resilience Centre leads Anthropocene dynamics research theme. Peter is deputy executive director of the Global Economic Dynamics and the Biosphere programme at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences where leads the research theme on global health and biosphere stewardship.

A recent focus of his work has been how society can live with antibiotic and pesticide resistance in the context of global sustainable development. This work has taken place through leadership of a SESYNC synthesis project (Living with resistance) and coordination of a JPIAMR funded project (AMResilience). As part of this research he has introduced the concept of coevolutionary governance; led work on identifying so-called planetary boundaries for antibiotic and pesticide resistance; called for considering antibiotic and pesticide susceptibility as regulating ecosystem services; and explored what a societal transformation to a pro-microbial planet might look like, where humans enhance the than many ecosystem services microorganisms provide.

He is currently working on a book on evolution and sustainability in the Anthropocene with Princeton University Press
