Research activity per year

Personal profile


I work with climate models and use them to understand Arctic conditions and how what happens at lower latitudes has implications for Arctic changes. Futher, I work with mass balance of the large ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica in the past, present and future, and how global climate changes are expressed in Denmark.


I teach in different climate courses and supervise students and early career researchers. I communicate the research through popular articles, talks and interviews with the media.

Job responsibilities

I am a professor and leader of Aarhus University Interdisciplinary Centre for Climate Change (iClimate). As part of my research, I supervise both phd students and postdocs. I chair the department research committee and am a member of the faculty committee for digital infrastructure and AU's high performance computing committee.
