I study the response of northern alpine permafrost regions to climatic changes over various spatiotemporal scales. The focus of my research is on permafrost- and vegetation dynamics and carbon release. I use palynology (pollen analysis) to reconstruct late Holocene vegetation assemblages, and satellite remote sensing to model past (decadal scale) land surface temperatures and surface greenness (NDVI). I am also interested in the controls that different ecosystem properties and geomorphological processes have on carbon release from the ground surface in periglacial environments. My main study area is Jotunheimen in southern Norway.
I hold a PhD in Physical Geography (Swansea University, 2022), an MSc in Ecosystem Services (University of Edinburgh, 2015) and a BA in Geography and Development Studies (King’s College London, 2013).
