Personal profile


My research focuses on past and present marine environments and their relation to climate and climate change foremost over the last 130 000 years. This research further includes the study on the interactions between land, sea, and atmosphere. My main tools are marine sediments with their contents of different microorganisms combined with instrumental hydrographic time series and process-oriented modeling. My research further addresses proxy calibration and validation both through experimental and field studies, i.e. improve the tools we use to reconstruct the past.

I find it especially intriguing to work in coastal settings, which are often affected by human impact, such as fjords, the Skagerrak and the Baltic Sea but also coastal upwelling areas around the world’s oceans. I lead a number of projects, financed from the Swedish research councils VR and Formas as well as the Crafoord Foundation, Oscar & Lili Lamm Foundation, and Olle Engkvist Byggmästare Foundation.
