About this person
My main responsibility is the laboratories and logistical issues when it comes to cruise activities at Uni Research Climate.
We have two laboratories, one for sediment processing and preparation for subsequent analyses and one for trace element analyses. Uni Research Trace Element Lab is a state of the art lab analysing trace element concentrations from marine calcium carbonates measuring elemental ratios like Mg/Ca. The purpose is to give an accurate estimate of reconstructed ocean temperatures. The laboratory houses preparation facilities and a new Agilent 720 ICP-OES.
I have experience from a number of scientific cruises in the north and south Atlantic Ocean, both as responsible for the coring and recently as cruise leader.
Other research interests are landscape development or geomorphology in a quaternary perspective from where I have a PhD from 2014. I’m looking into how glaciers and icecaps during the quaternary influence the landscape especially in Norway both in terms of erosion and preservation.
