  • Appointed to the Norwegian Minister of Climate and Environment's Climate Advisory Board
  • CICEROs Principal Investigator in research projects funded by the European Commission
  • Heavily involved in the UNFCCC-initiated process on modelling and assessment of contributions to climate change (MATCH) as co-chair of the Scientific Coordination Committee
  • Member of the current Impacts and Science Group (ISG) of the Committee for Aviation Environmental Protection (CAEP) of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)
  • Member of the Expert Panel for the initiative “Global guidance on environmental life cycle impact assessment indicators”, which aims to revise and update the frameworks of environmental impact indicators in Life-Cycle Assessment (LCA). Initiated by United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC)
  • Contributed to WMO/UNEP Ozone Assessment reports as Lead Author, Contributing Author and reviewer
  • Vice chair IPCC Working Group I


  • ACCRI CIC-MOD The objective of the ACCRI CIC-MOD project is to investigate how aviation emissions in different regions affect the atmosphere and climate on regional and global scales.
  • The role of short-lived climate forcers in the global climate regime The primary objective of the project is to provide a comprehensive assessment of the potential of mitigation of Short-Lived Climate Forcers (SLCFs) in the emerging global climate regime.
  • Governing EU-Norwegian willingness to extract, combust and consume less carbon The objective of this project is to identify how to best coordinate policies in the EU and Norway to maximise the overall effectiveness of their combined initiatives. A key challenge for unilateral policy initiatives in a global market place, even for a big coalition like the EU, is carbon leakage and competitiveness concerns.
  • Bio4Clim Comparative climate impact assessment of the forest based bio-economies of Norway, Sweden and Finland
  • EVA - Earth system modelling of climate Variations in the Anthropocene EVA will provide a cutting-edge version of the Norwegian Earth system model NorESM for global climate assessments (CMIP6, IPCC AR6) including prognostic climate experiments and analyses of key importance for the national and international community
  • Quantifying Climate Impacts of Future Forest Management Strategies in Norway The international community has agreed that the increase in global temperature must be limited to 2°C above the pre-industrial levels. Meeting this ambitious goal requires a large-scale shift away from the fossil economy towards one based on renewable materials and energy like biomass.
  • ACACIA – Advancing the Science for Aviation and Climate The EU-funded project ACACIA (Advancing the Science for Aviation and Climate) aims to provide improved scientific knowledge of the non-CO2 impacts from aviation emissions of relevance for the development of harmonised policies and regulations for a more climate-friendly aviation system.
  • AVIATE: How can aviation contribute to a low-carbon society? The AVIATE (Aviation in a low-carbon society) project will provide better understanding of the climate impact of aviation, both for Norway and globally, and explore options for reducing that impact.
  • ChiNorBC This project will help enhance the knowledge base for and support the development of a strategy for BC/OC co-control in China.
  • CATHY Emissions of Asian Anthropogenic Aerosols (A3) are rapidly changing - most notably black carbon and sulphate aerosol precursors from India and China. The resulting range of climate impacts and societal hazards may dominate regionally over greenhouse gas induced trends for the next several decades, but the implications are as yet insufficiently explored. CATHY (Climate implications of rapid changes in Asian Anthropogenic Aerosol emissions: Temperature, Hydrological cycle and variabilitY) tackles the urgent need for quantifying climate related hazards resulting from ongoing and projected changes in A3 emissions.
