I am an open-minded and enthusiastic Postdoctoral researcher at the Norwegian Research Center in Bergen, Norway. My work focuses on the investigation of emission overshoot scenarios and Earth system reversibility, as well as the land component in the frame of the global carbon cycle. This includes work on the permafrost-carbon feedback and the biosphere in climate change projections of current generation climate models and corresponding dynamic ecosystem (in)stabilities. Further, my research interest lies in the analysis of land-atmosphere and land-climate interactions, including thermodynamic and hydrological processes at the land surface. I extend my research to investigating high-latitude ecosystems as potential tipping elements under changing warming conditions.
