I am an arctic climate scientist, studying the interaction between terrestrial ecosystems and the atmosphere. I am particularly interested in how the amplified warming of the Arctic affects the carbon uptake by vegetation and the release of greenhouse gases due to permafrost thaw. In my research, I draw from a long experience in studying the functioning of ecosystems across the Arctic – in northeast Siberia, Svalbard, Alaska, Greenland and northern Scandinavia. I wield this experience from the field to derive new insights from satellite data and to advance the development of land surface models.

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).
