I am an atmospheric scientist studying how cloud feedbacks affect Earth's climate sensitivity, and how we can better project global warming using emergent constraints. I work with Prof. Trude Storelvmo as part of the FORCeS project. Before joining UiO, I received my PhD degree in Mathematics from the University of Exeter and briefly worked as a postdoctoral researcher there. During this time, I used an idealised General Circulation Model to understand how the land surface affects tropical precipitation (on seasonal and longer timescales) and how this might change due to climate change. I also hold a BSc in Physics and an MSc in Environmental Sciences from the University of Vienna. For my master thesis, I studied oceanic mass and heat transports into the Arctic Ocean, and for my bachelor thesis I studied the phenomenon of global dimming.
