PhD candidate on the VIKINGS project (Volcanic Eruptions and their Impacts on Climate, Environment, and Viking Society in 500–1250 CE)
The main objective of the PhD thesis is to analyse climatic and environmental changes during the last two millennia with a focus on the period 500-1250 by using lake sediment archives as a proxy for past environmental changes. Ultimately, this project seeks to resolve how volcanic eruptions and their environmental impacts facilitated societal changes during the Viking Era. By learning from past volcanic eruptions we may be able to predict future climatic, environmental, and societal impacts.
Currently, I am spending a lot of time working on evaluating how Computed Tomography (CT) can be used to analyse annual laminations (varves) in lake sediment cores. From January to April 2022 I will be at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Columbia University (NY, USA) to work on lipid biomarker analyses to reconstruct past hydroclimate in Norway.
Don't hesitate to contact me if you are interested in discussing my work or research collaborations.
