I am a senior research scientist at the Earth Observation group in the Technology department of NORCE. I am a physicist trained in the field of signal processing, and work with development and implementations of new algorithms for extracting information from digital signals.

At the Earth Observation group we mainly work with images acquired from Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) on polar-orbiting satellites. My current main focus is on applications over ocean, where we use SAR images to get information on wind, waves and currents, and do ship detection. I also work with making software operational.
