I'm an atmospheric and climate scientist studying climate variability and change, atmospheric dynamics, and terrestrial carbon cycle dynamics. In my research I combine observations, theory, and numerical modeling to advance our understanding of the Earth system. You can read more about my research projects under Research.
My current research focuses on developing methods to estimate CO2 emissions and uptake using primarily satellite observations. Specifically, I use data assimilation and inverse modeling techniques to infer regional-scale CO2 emissions and uptake from both natural and anthropogenic sources and sinks. Such methods are useful to study the natural carbon cycle and independently estimate anthropogenic fossil fuel emissions.
I'm also interested in studying climate change in the Arctic and what implications it has on mid-latitude climate variability and weather extremes.
I work as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Space, Earth and Environment at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden. I obtained my PhD from The Pennsylvania State University in 2018.

News and activities
- 2023-03-06 Our paper on the TRACE coupled atmosphere–carbon data assimilation system has been published by JAMES. Read more here: Regional CO2 inversion through ensemble-based simultaneous state and parameter estimation: TRACE framework and controlled experiments.
- 2023-01-03 Happy New Year! I have started a new position as an Assistant Professor at Chalmers University of Technology. At Chalmers, I will further develop techniques to estimate greenhouse gas emissions and removals, as well as continue research on climate variability and change with a focus on the polar regions.
- 2022-11-05 I was recently interviewed by Sveriges Radio (Radio Sweden) about monitoring emissions using satellites. You can listen to the full interview here (mainly in Swedish): Nya satelliter avslöjar dolda utsläpp av växthusgaser.
