My research interests focus on the fluxes of heat and momentum at the interface between frozen sea-ice and the ocean below. Most of my work to date involves performing direct numerical simulations of rough sea-ice and investigating the impact of these dynamics on larger scale ocean dynamics. Specifically i have been looking at the effects of ice roughness on momentum and heat exchange at the ice-ocean interface. I have also been active in more ocean focused research through the university og Gothenburg as a Fulbright Scholar coupling simple process models with observational campaigns (ROAM-MIZ and SCALE Projects).

Broader interest include ice-ocean boundary layer, marginal ice zone, sea-ice formation, submesoscale eddies under ice
