Om mig

My work is mainly focused on model simulations of physical and biogeochemical processes in the Baltic Sea. While my background is in physical oceanography, my primary research area is presently the land-water-air transports and tranformations of carbon. One overarching aim of my research is to elucidate how the Baltic Sea and other marine systems have responded in the past - and could be anticipated to respond in the future - to changes related to for example CO2 emissions, eutrophication, and global warming.
