Fields of work

Modeling aerosol-cloud-climate interactions on different spatial scales (global, regional and hemispheric) and to understand how a better representation of the processes can result in better radiative forcing estimates. Understanding the intercontinental transport of chemical species such as carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides from satellites.

Research interests

  • Aerosol-cloud-climate interactions
  • Climate impact of explosive volcanic eruptions
  • Icelandic volcanoes and impact over Sweden
  • Intercontinental transport of chemical species

Special competences

Offline coupling of with regional climate model, RCA4 by incorporating a cloud parameterization scheme.
