I'm a senior research scientist at the Leibniz-Institute for Baltic Sea Research in Warnemünde and  member of the working group Dynamics of regional climate systems. In my research, I try to understand how longterm variability in the atmosphere and ocean affects Northern Europe and the Baltic Sea on timescales of 10 to 1,000 years.

For my research on the teleconnection between the North Atlantic Ocean and Northern Europe, I was recently awarded the 2023 Division Outstanding Early Career Scientist Award in the Ocean Sciences division at the European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly.

Research Interest

Currently, my main focus is the teleconnection between the North Atlantic and the Baltic Sea in CMIP6 models.

Relationship between two clusters of CMIP6 piControls members, focusing on the relationship between the North Atlantic and sensible heat fluxes, sea surface temperatures, and the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation.


My latest work focuses on the relationship between the North Atlantic Oscillation and the Atlantic Multidecadal Variability in CMIP6 piControl runs. If you are interested, find our study published in Environmental Research Letters.
