Personal profile


Main areas of work: Hydrology, Ecology, Modelling, Data analysis

I am a driven person, who is naturally curious of the world. I am good at identifying and investigating complex relationships, and I familiarize myself with new topics and methods quickly. I work independently and creatively, finding solutions through trial and error, though I also enjoy collaborating and sparring for other points of view. Through my Master’s education in Physical Geography and current employment at GEUS, I have achieved knowledge in a broad range of fields ranging in scale from cellular processes, and local watersheds all the way up to ecosystems and global climate circulation. I also have strong technical skills and experience in working with Python, MIKE & ArcGIS, as well as MATLAB and UNIX systems.
