Academic interests

My main interest is foraminifera from the Arctic. By studying their taxonomy I also research their palaeoenvironment, depositional environment, og assemblage trends in the different Arctic regions. My main focus is foraminifera from Late Jurassic to Early Cretaceous found in Svalbard.

Background

I got my bachelor degree in Geology from the University in Iceland, and my masters degree in Palaeontology and Stratigraphy from the University of Oslo. My master thesis was titled "Foraminifera from Upper Jurassic - Lower Cretaceous hydrocarbon seep carbonates and djacent shales in the Slottsmøya Member, Central Spitsbergen" and I wrote it as a member of the Spitsbergen Mezosoic Research Group. I have also worked as an industry micropalaeontologist for several years. 

Partners

I am currently a part of the LoCrA consortium - Lower Cretaceous Basin studies in the Arctic.
