I am a Senior Research Scientist in Earth Observation at NORCE – Norwegian Research Centre AS (formerly Norut) in Tromsø, Norway, working on the application of satellite-borne SAR for operational monitoring. I started my research career in polar research using active microwave sensors during my PhD at the Norwegian Polar Institute and then at the national ice services in the US and Norway.

Currently, I am focusing on the terrestrial application of synthetic aperture radar (SAR), specifically on forest, land cover and change monitoring with a strong interest in sustainable development and cooperation with developing countries .

I have been involved in several projects on tropical regions in regard to REDD (Reduce Emission of Deforestation and Forest Degradation) and in GEO’s Global Forest Observation Initiative (GFOI), leading the SAR processing, analysis and the service delivery to end users in Africa and South-America in EU FP7 and ESA projects.

I am also a member of ESA's Candidate Copernicus ROSE-L Mission Advisory Group.
