About myself:

Fields of research: Tectonophysics; satellite and airborne gravity & magnetic data; 3D modelling; inversion, isostasy

My main research interest is the structure of the lithosphere from the combined interpretation of satellite and terrestrial data. In all my research projects interdisciplinary approaches are applied with special emphasis on the use of potential field data in forward and inverse modelling and their combination to deep seismic and MT results and geological studies. Currently, a focus is on both the development of methods and the sensitivity analysis of satellite data for lithospheric studies.

In addition, to my position in Kiel, I am also Associate Professor at the Department of Petroleum Engineering and Applied Geophysics at the NTNU in Trondheim.
