I am an ecohydrologist who studies the interaction between terrestrial ecosystems and the atmosphere. I am particularly interested in the amplified warming and changing hydrology of the Arctic-Boreal region, and how this affects the CO2 uptake by vegetation and the release of greenhouse gases – for example from permafrost thaw. In my research, I draw from a long experience in studying ecosystems across the Arctic-Boreal region – in northeast Siberia, Greenland, Scandinavia and Svalbard. I wield this broad field experience to derive new insights from satellite data and to advance model development.

Besides my position at the Department of Geosciences in Oslo, I am also an associate professor in geobiosphere science at the Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science of Lund University in Sweden (divided 50/50 between the two).
