I am a physical oceanographer working with observations from the Arctic Ocean, as part of the Nansen Legacy research project.
My main research interest is Atlantic water flowing into the Arctic Ocean through Fram Strait and the Barents Sea. I focus on Atlantic water volume transport, circulation and mixing of Atlantic water with surrounding polar water.
