I am Assistant Professor in climatology at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, with most experience in polar oceanography. I obtained my PhD in 2015 from the University of East Anglia, UK, in collaboration with the UK Met Office. My research focusses on the transport of heat by global deep waters and their interaction with the rest of the climate system at high latitudes, using global coupled modelling, in-situ hydrographic data, and remote sensing. I participated in four Antarctic and Arctic field campaigns, two as PI of the physical oceanography group, and will join in 2019/2020 both large international expeditions MOSAiC and Synoptic Arctic Survey. I am also a member of the CLIVAR/CliC Northern Ocean Regional Panel (NORP), an associate editor for the Journal of Physical Oceanography, and a regular author for the EGU Cryosphere blog.

    of the panel meeting.

  • One-on-One Mentoring
    Email correspondence with APECS members regarding career advice (including
    alternative careers in polar/cryospheric issues), research skills, data
    management and occasional research-specific discussions/questions.

  • In-person meetings/conferences/seminars
