Personal profile


During my PhD in Physical Geography from Stockholm University, Sweden my reseach focus was on the spatial distribution of soil organic carbon and nitrogen in complex permafrost environments, emphasising the soil forming process of cryoturbation.

Currently working as a Research Fellow at Northumbria University, I am involved in the “Changing Arctic Carbon cycle in the cOastal Ocean Near-shore” (CACOON) project that investigates the fate of organic matter released from thawing permafrost into streams and rivers and subsequently discharged to the Arctic Ocean. An improved understanding of how this vulnerable organic matter is transformed, mineralized and released during transit through the highly reactive and understudied nearshore estuarine environment is crucial for examining the fate and influence of terrestrial organic matter on the Arctic Ocean.

Research interests

- Spatial distribution of soil organic carbon and nitrogen in permafrost-affected soils

- Fate of organic matter released from thawing permafrost into streams and rivers

- Carbon dioxide and methane fluxes from nearshore environments
