I am a Geo-ecologist (MSc) and specialized in analyses of climate extremes in climate models (PhD, IMPRS ESM, Hamburg).

I study various factors that can drive changes in climate extremes, such as climate variability and anthropogenic factors (e.g., greenhouse gases and air pollution). I strive for interdisciplinary approaches and better integration of natural and social sciences. Particularly, I am interested in relating physical aspects of climate extremes to socioeconomic impacts and questions related to adaptation and decision making.

  • Natural and Anthropogenic influence onPrecipitation and EXtreme events NAPEX skal utdype forståelsen av nedbør og ekstremnedbørsendringer fra ulike driver av klimaendringer.
  • SIS Future Africa - Co-production of climate services in South Africa and Tanzania The core idea of this project is the production of climate information through the co-production of climate services. However, the type of and need for climate information depend very much on the location, sector and livelihood of People.
  • ClimateXL Weather and climate extremes are likely to be one of the largest societal challenges associated with climate change in this century. Under climate change, these extreme events will intensify and become more frequent, and consequently the risk of severe and costly damage for humans and infrastructure will increase.
  • HYPRE - HYdropower and PREcipitation trends Investigating historical and future precipitation trends in regions important for hydropower production
  • Translating Weather Extremes into the Future – a case for Norway TWEX-Fremtiden i Norge baserer seg på en “historien om framtiden” metode. Denne metoden vil kunne vise at et scenario tilpasset en bestemt region og bestemte aktører i kombinasjon med en rekke klima- og værmodeller vil kunne gi et mer realistisk bilde av hvordan været vil se ut i fremtiden i akkurat dette området. Med bedre analyser om ekstemvær kan man forebygge og planlegge beredskapen på en bedre måte enn i dag.
  • CiXPAG - Interaction of Climate Extremes, Air Pollution and Agro-ecosystems Future food production, and consequently food security, is very sensitive to both climate change and air pollution. So far, little is known about how climate extremes and ozone pollution interact to affect agriculture or about the relative effectiveness of climate change adaptation and ozone regulation measures for various crops and regions.
  • SUPER - SUb-daily Precipitation Extremes in highly-populated Regions The main objective of SUPER is to quantify the influence of anthropogenic activity on sub-daily extreme precipitation in highly populated regions
