I have been assigned as the head of the Norwegian National Soil Carbon Monitoring programme at NIBIO since 2023. My role is to lead, develop and execute this very first soil carbon monitoring project in Norway.

I am a climate change biologist with broad interests in the impacts of human activities and associated climate/environmental changes on global biogeochemical processes. I completed PhD at Imperial College London in 2015 with a thesis entitled Investigation into the effects of elevated carbon dioxide and temperature on nutrient cycling and understorey vegetation in a Eucalyptus woodland. My previous work can be found here.
