Research interests
Downscaling climate scenarios: Downscaling involves providing information about changes in weather-related phenomena at a regional/local scale, based on coarse-resolution results from computer simulations of the entire earth system (GCMs) or regional models (RCMs). I am currently using weather generator methods and historical perturbation methods.

Research group
The Regional Climate Group, RCG, at the University of Gothenburg has a unique profile within the Swedish climate research community, and an international reputation in the field of statistical climate analysis and paleoclimatology. RCG represents a successful research environment, with a high scientific production rate, good connections with international and national research communities, and modern climate research tools and GIS competences.

In today’s evolving research landscape, the accessibility of research data plays an important role in advancing knowledge dissemination and scientific progress. This lecture covers the imperative behind making research data accessible and delves into the practical implementation of open access to research data. The presentation explores the dynamics of data accessibility, discussing who can access research data and the mechanisms through which data are made available, emphasizing the principles of FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) data. A crucial aspect covered is the establishment of Data Management Plans to facilitate systematic and organized data handling throughout the research process.
