My research focuses on biostratigraphy by applying various aspects of palynology and palynofacies as keys to understand rock-age relations (dating and correlation). My work also includes applying palynology as proxies for paleovegetation, paleoclimate, and paleogeographic reconstructions, ranging in age from the Carboniferous up to the Pliocene. Since dating and reliable correlation tools are essential in every aspect of geological mapping and paleogeographic reconstructions I have worked both on a basinwide scale as as well on developing local zonations.

My ongoing research focus includes the Triassic and Paleozoic of the Arctic areas and includes novel palynological work in areas and parts of the successions previously not studied. This has a.o. resulted in various publications from the Barents Sea/Svalbard area.

Research areas/interests

· Biostratigraphy, palynology, palynofacies, Triassic, Carboniferous

· High resolution biostratigraphy, correlations, dating, zonations, biofacies

· Main geographic areas: Arctic/Barents Sea, Norwegian Continental Shelf
