After many years abroad, among others at Yale University, Trude Storelvmo returned to the University of Oslo in the autumn of 2017. With that, she was back at the Department of Geosciences where she took her doctorate back in 2006.

First employed as associate professor, and with her dedicated research interest in the atmosphere and the impact of aerosols on the climate, she soon received both ERC grants, and a little later she was also part of a larger Swedish-coordinated project consortium ForCes in Horizon-2020.

In 2019, Storelvmo became a full Professor at the Department of Geosciences. Now, this year she was awarded the University of Oslo's prize for Younger researchers for 2020. Storelvmo is affiliated as Professor II at the Nord University Business School. Economic consequences of climate changes are also one of the areas in which she has research interests, and which is an important aspect of climate changes.
