I work with ocean models and adjoints to study sensitivity and uncertainties in the Nordic Seas and Arctic Ocean circulation.

Using the adjoint of an ocean general circulation model, I try to understand the local and remote processes that generate temperature anomalies in the Nordic Seas on different timescales and their potential contribution to decadal climate predictability. 

I furthermore use techniques from uncertainty quantification in inverse problems to assess observation systems for the reconstruction of modern and past ocean states. In a modern context I quantify to what degree far-field observations constrain ocean diagnostics of interest, such as the subsurface temperature at Greenland’s outlet glaciers.

Furthermore, under the umbrella of the ice2ice project I explore the capability of the globally available proxy surface ocean data to constrain ocean circulation of the past, taking into account its sparsity and uncertainties.

I am a PhD research fellow at the Department for Earth Science, University of Bergen and the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research. I am interested in ocean dynamics, high-latitude/polar climate and ice-ocean interactions. I use ocean and adjoint modelling as well as tools from uncertainty quantification to study sensitivities and uncertainties of ocean circulation.

Holding a Master's degree in mathematics, I like research topics where I can combine my expertise in math with climate modelling.
