CV

Born February 7, 1980; Danish nationality
Employment and education
June 2011 – present
and
August 2009 – December 2009

Scientist at the Danish Meteorological Institute, Denmark

I work with modeling of the North Atlantic and Arctic oceans, to simulate ocean and ice conditions and study climate changes and oil drift. We are presently working on a coupled ocean–sea ice–atmosphere model. Other interest areas include coastal satellite altimetry (measuring sea level and storm surges from space) and climate-related sea level changes around Denmark.
