About me


I am an assistant professor in scientific computing with applications in climate science. My research is primarly about how numerical methods can be used acccurately and robustly in climate models. My specific research interests includes development and analysis of finite element methods, ice sheet modelling, model adaptivity, and more recently ocean modelling and stochastic processes. I am also interested in perturbation expansions and radial basis function methods.

For an overview on what my research in scientific computing with application ice sheet modelling is about, you can read this popular science article in the student magazine XRDS: Crossroads, the ACM Magazine for Students. 

During previous positions I have worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the department of mathematics at Christian-Albrechts-Universität in Kiel (Germany) and as a PhD candidate at the IT-department at Uppsala University  (Sweden).
