PhD research on the role of the Southern Ocean in global biogeochemical cycling. I focus on paleoceanography (Last Glacial Maximum and Pleistocene), carbon isotope distributions, and model development and analysis (Norwegian Earth System Model NorESM / ocean biogeochemistry general circulation model HAMOCC2s / Jake Gebbie's Total Matrix Intercomparison TMI model).
I aim to publish one outreach article per scientific publication. They are available on the SciSnack website: https://www.scisnack.com/2019/04/04/whats-in-mud/ and https://www.scisnack.com/2014/07/16/urban-metabolism/.
25% of my position is teaching-related. I am the teaching assistant in the UiB course GEOF236 (Chemical Oceanography), where I teach the calculus sessions and give a one-day introduction to numerical modeling.

I currently work on how the role of the Southern Ocean in global elemental cycling was different between the Last Glacial Maximum and the pre-industrial ocean. Besides that, I work on the seasonal Southern Ocean with a focus on the interaction between sea ice cover, biology and circulation impacting air-sea gas exchange of carbon.
