I have a PhD position available, focusing on dynamics of coastal upwelling!
The application opens soon at vacancies at MISU

I am Associate Professor of Coastal Oceanography at the Department of Meteorology, Stockholm University (MISU) and I am also a research fellow (Baltic Sea Fellow) at the Stockholm University Baltic Sea Centre.

Co-Director of Studies at MISU since 2021
Potential student interested in weather, oceanography, climate physics?

I have a broad background and scientific interests spanning various topics of Geophysical Fluid Dynamics. The focus of my current research is on mesoscale- and regional ocean circulation, its variability as well as ocean interactions with atmosphere, cryosphere and biosphere. In my research, I employ observations, idealized ocean models and regional ocean model output, Lagrangian analysis and modelling, statistical methods, and theory. My studies often address ocean turbulence and turbulent dispersion which are not well understood yet important element of the climate system and require hollistic and novel approaches. My study domain considers primarily the Atlantic Ocean, the Nordic Seas, Greenland shelfves and fjords as well as the Baltic Sea where I started my oceanographic studies as an undergraduate student.

I have been teaching courses at undergraduate, master and doctrorate level within fields of Geophysical Fluid Dynamics, ocean circulation, sea-going physical oceanography, regional climate variability, statistics for climate scientists, Lagrangian analysis and dispersion. Currently, I am lecturer and course responsible for the MISU Master's Programme in Atmospheric Science, Oceanography and Climate Physics courses: Geophysical Fluid Dynamics and Physical Oceanography.
