Research fields

My primary research  focuses on the understanding and modeling the functioning of regional marine systems and their coupled interactions with atmosphere and marine biosphere. A significant part of my research efforts goes into the development of coupled models, resulting in one of the first regional coupled atmosphere-ice-ocean models, a NPZD-hydrodynamic model and a coupled ground water-sea water model.

·       Basic teaching qualification from University of Bergen

·       Seminar series for PhD and Graduate student level (University of Hamburg, together with a.o. Prof. H.v. Storch, Prof. D. Marotzke, Peter Mueller)

·       Lecturer at summer schools in Sylt/Helgoland (AWI/GKSS, Germany), Kos (Greece) and the Baltic Sea Summer School/Bornholm (Uni. Gothenburg, DTU Aqua)
