About this person
I obtained my PhD from Columbia University in 2010 and, after a one year postdoc at the University of North Carolina, moved to Bergen in 2011. My interests are broad and cover many aspects of the climate system from large-scale climate dynamics to small-scale convective phenomena. I am currently engaged in research on the atmospheric circulation, storm track dynamics, teleconnections, their variability and their responses to both naturally and anthropogenically forced climate change. I am also leading a number of projects focused on regional to local climate variability and change. These involve regional downscaling using dynamical and combined dynamical-statistical approaches. Due to the applied nature of these studies I have also taken an interest in how climate information is produced and used by society. As a result I am, therefore, quite heavily involved in the nascent fields of climate information distillation and climate services science.
