Jahnebakken 5, 5007 Bergen, Norway

I have been leading the research group 'regional climate and climate services' in the climate division since 2016. Additionally, I am affiliated to the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research and a member of the leader group of the Norwegian Centre for Climate Services.

My main research interest lies within studying atmospheric processes affecting regional climate and the physical risk caused by or increased due to global climate changes. Currently, I contribute to the projects ALERTNESS, CLIMTOUR, AutonoWeather and Transadapt.

Previous positions:

  • 2010 - 2016 Researcher II, Uni Climate, Uni Research Ltd., Bergen, Norway.
  • 2006 - 2010 PhD student, Geophysical Institute, University of Bergen.
  • 2005 - 2006 Research Assistant, Meteorological Institute, University of Munich, Germany.


  • 2011 PhD, Meteorology, Geophysical Institute, University of Bergen, Norway.
  • 2005 Diploma, Meteorology, Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich, Germany.
