My Research interests:

Study of microphysical and chemical properties of aerosols and clouds using a broad range of measurement techniques (i.e., in-situ and remote-sensing techniques on ground-based and airborne platforms within dedicated field campaigns and laboratory studies), modeling of aerosol optical properties, aerosol hygroscopicity, aerosol-cloud interactions, study of ambient aerosols and clouds in the Arctic.

SOLAS Sweden:

  • February 2021: I am the new Swedish representative to Surface Ocean – Lower Atmosphere Study (SOLAS) . If you are interested to  receive updates from the Swedish SOLAS-community, please sign-up here. This form is also used to update on recent progress and upcoming plans that will be included in the annual SOLAS report.

Some updates:

  • We will continue our course series e-science tools in atmospheric science also in2021! More info on our course in Tjärnö, Sweden, in November 2021 can be found here.
  • The NASCENT campaign has finished and first papers are in the pipeline. Find out more on our project webpage.
  • News, blogs and photos from the Arctic Ocean 2018 expedition &  MOCCHA campaign be found on our project webpage.

⇒ We always offer interesting topics for master or bachelor work. Just contact me if you are interested to work with atmospheric aerosols or clouds!


I am currently giving the Aerosol Physics (MI4004) course and teach the lecture on passive remote sensing on the Remote sensing in atmospheric science and oceanography (MO8008) course at MISU. In fall 2022, the Aerosol Physics and Aerosol Chemistry course will be given as a new joint master course called Aerosol Science & Technology (link will follow soon). In addition, I am organizing the annual Course series on e-science tools in atmospheric science together with University of Oslo/MetNo (Norway).
