I have a background in observational Astronomy and imaging techniques, especially in the infrared. My research interests concern advanced imaging and spectroscopy. I have a PhD in the field of young stars and outflows, but am now involved in interdisciplinary environmental projects, mainly the construction of a method for direct imaging of greenhouse gases on a landscape level. I am also involved in a project that uses thermal imaging of lake surfaces to measure the lake-atmosphere gas exchange in different environments.
Imaging greenhouse gases. Development of an advanced camera and imaging technique for direct imaging of greenhouse gases on a landscape level.
Lake-atmosphere gas exchange. Development of a method for estimating the exchange of greenhouse gases in aquatic environments using thermal IR imaging of water surfaces.

About Tema V (WES)
Water and Environmental Studies is an interdisciplinary research unit focusing on issues regarding water supply, sustainable development, climate change and food in history and society. Education in Water and Environmental Studies: under graduate level, master level, graduate level (PhD).
The objective for TEMA - The Department of Thematic Studies is to pursue excellent research and education at undergraduate and advanced levels relevant to society. Tema aims to provide a major impetus in career development for both future researchers and those who have just entered the field of research
