Senior researcher

Climate scientist with PhD in meteorology and broad expertise in global atmospheric and climate modeling.

Experienced science disseminator. Studying the composition of the atmosphere and the climate response to emissions from human activities, with research spanning from detailed processes to overarching questions of human-induced climate change with implications for policymaking and society. Specific topics include the climate impact of aviation, emission metrics, short-lived climate forcers, emissions of air pollution in Asia and other regions, and interactions between the land surface, atmosphere, and climate.

PhD (2014), Department of Geosciences, University of Oslo. Title: "Climate impacts of past, present and future emissions from the transport sector".

M.Sc (2008), Meteorology and Oceanography, Department of Geosciences, University of Oslo

  • ACCRI CIC-MOD The objective of the ACCRI CIC-MOD project is to investigate how aviation emissions in different regions affect the atmosphere and climate on regional and global scales.
  • AC/BC In search of airborne soot, and how it affects the climate
  • Quantifying Impacts of South Asian Aerosols on Regional and Arctic Climate The main objective of QUISARC is to quantify regional and Arctic climate impacts of South Asian aerosol emissions, by updating present emission inventories and tracing the aerosol impacts through teleconnections, and physical and chemical processes
  • Quantifying Climate Impacts of Future Forest Management Strategies in Norway The international community has agreed that the increase in global temperature must be limited to 2°C above the pre-industrial levels. Meeting this ambitious goal requires a large-scale shift away from the fossil economy towards one based on renewable materials and energy like biomass.
  • ACRoBEAR – high-latitude risk of wildfire and disease The ACRoBEAR (Arctic Community Resilience to Boreal Environmental Change: Assessing Risks from fire and disease) project will quantify changing risk of boreal forest fire and natural-focal disease for local communities in high northern latitudes under changing environmental and climatic conditions.
  • ACACIA – Advancing the Science for Aviation and Climate The EU-funded project ACACIA (Advancing the Science for Aviation and Climate) aims to provide improved scientific knowledge of the non-CO2 impacts from aviation emissions of relevance for the development of harmonised policies and regulations for a more climate-friendly aviation system.
  • AVIATE: How can aviation contribute to a low-carbon society? The AVIATE (Aviation in a low-carbon society) project will provide better understanding of the climate impact of aviation, both for Norway and globally, and explore options for reducing that impact.
  • ENBEL: Connecting health and climate change research Climate change is according to the WHO the greatest threat to human health in the 21st century. By bringing together leaders in climate change and health research the CICERO-coordinated Horizon 2020 project ENBEL will contribute with knowledge and policy advice on climate change and health links.
  • ChiNorBC This project will help enhance the knowledge base for and support the development of a strategy for BC/OC co-control in China.
  • CATHY Emissions of Asian Anthropogenic Aerosols (A3) are rapidly changing - most notably black carbon and sulphate aerosol precursors from India and China. The resulting range of climate impacts and societal hazards may dominate regionally over greenhouse gas induced trends for the next several decades, but the implications are as yet insufficiently explored. CATHY (Climate implications of rapid changes in Asian Anthropogenic Aerosol emissions: Temperature, Hydrological cycle and variabilitY) tackles the urgent need for quantifying climate related hazards resulting from ongoing and projected changes in A3 emissions.
  • ARIDITY Dust is the most abundant species of aerosol in the atmosphere. While mineral dust from deserts is the largest source, an important but less well-studied component is soil dust from sparsely vegetated surfaces. Commonly referred to as “anthropogenic dust”, arising from the influence of human activities on land surfaces and subsequent increase in wind erosion and dust emissions, this source is believed to contribute a substantial fraction to the total global dust load. However, the contribution and climate impact of anthropogenic dust, through interactions with radiation, clouds and precipitation, is poorly quantified.

  • The Arctic Global climate change has caused major changes in the Arctic, and these changes are happening quickly. In recent decades the average annual temperature in the Arctic has risen about twice as much as the global average, and the extent of Arctic sea ice in the summer has decreased by almost half.
