I am a SEAS Programme post-doctoral fellow at the University of Bergen in GEO (Department of Earth Science) and Bjerknes Center for Climate Research in Bergen, Norway.My background is in applied mathematics with a later specialization in Ice-sheet modelling and ice-climate interactions. That basically means I am running simulations of ice models, with the aim to improve the models, the data we use and how we approach questions like: "How are changes from the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheet impacting the climate and vice versa?", "Which processes are important to capture when lookind in to air-ice and ice-ocean feedbacks?", "How do we compute sea level contribution from the ice sheets?" and "How do changes on the ice impact local communities directly and indirectly?"

Within the SEAS programme and the ClimateNarratives project, I am combining results from ice simulation projections with sea level projections. I am investigating how different climate scenarios will impact the changes of the Greenland ice sheet and how those changes will impact sea level around the globe.On another level, I seek to understand how sea level changes are impacting local communities in Greenland (where mainly ice loss and sea level fall are expected) and in Fiji where sea level rise is already impacting local communities.
