I am a statistician in the Statistical Analysis, Machine Learning, and Image Analysis (SAMBA) group at the Norwegian Computing Center where I am a Researcher Leader for Climate and Environment. My work is within the fields of spatial and space-time statistics, Bayesian methods and forecasting. I work on environmental applications together with atmospheric scientists and hydrologists to solve problems on uncertainty quantification, probabilistic prediction and model evaluation.
