Droughts in the Anthropocene
This publication was produced as part of the digital interactive exhibition Droughts in the Anthropocene, prepared for the fortieth session
Spending much of my childhood and youth in the Norwegian forests and mountains, I developed a curiosity for environmental issues early on. In my academic work, I have been interested in studying interactions and connections between society, nature and policy. I hold a MSc in globalisation, specialising in geography from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).
Before joining GRID-Arendal, my great passion for mountain environments led me to Nepal and the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD). Here I spent most of my time working with the Himalayan Climate Change Adaptation Programme exploring connections between the Himalayas and the Arctic.
At GRID-Arendal I am engaged in a number of projects concerning high mountain and Arctic environments, by turning complex environmental data into creative and scientifically sound communication products. I work on topics concerning climate change impacts and adaptation, biodiversity, ecosystems and marine litter, and lead the UArctic Thematic Network on Arctic Plastic Pollution.
