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 from the last course in Tjärnö, Sweden, can be found here.
  • The NASCENT campaign is ongoing (extended due to COVID-19). 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 addition, I am organizing the annual Course series on e-science tools in atmospheric science together with University of Oslo/MetNo (Norway).
