My research is focused within the field of physical oceanography. Currently I am studying the Lofoten Basin and its vorticity dynamics. My main focus will be to study the current over the steep continental slope outside Lofoten. I will investigate the stability of the current,occuring eddy events and how lateral export of these eddies will interact with the Lofoten Basin and affect the stability and energy budget of the Lofoten Basin Eddy. My work will be based on idealized modelling and analyses of an already existing model.
