Teaching and Supervision

Teaching at the University of Gothenburg (Sweden) since 2015

Co-Supervisor of two PhD students:
– Wiebke Aldenhoff: “Radar remote sensing of sea ice”. Main supervisor is Leif Eriksson, Chalmers University of Technology. She successfully passed her licentiate (mid-PhD defense) in October 2017.
– Martin Mohrmann: “The Weddell Polynya: climate beast or just another hole in the ice?”. Main supervisor is Sebastiaan Swart, University of Gothenburg. Project started in January 2018.

Supervisor of Master’s students:
– Clara Calander, co-supervised with Anna Wåhlin, “Bottom temperature as a proxy for warm bottom layer temperature, West Antarctica”. Completed March 2016.
– Sara Sahlin, “Bottom temperature sensors: using 2015 Greenland results to successfully plan the 2017 Arctic deployment”. Completed September 2017.
– Lovisa Waldrop Bergman, “Ocean surface currents as a proxy for meltwater export – A modelling study”. Due to complete in June 2018.

I also supervise bachelor’s student projects (currently, one).

Autumn 2017 – created lectures + lecturing and marking in “Marine Models and Databases” (MAR109)
Undergraduate module in Swedish about modelling, from the identification of the differential equations to solve the system from their numerical resolutions and parameterisations in large ocean models.

Autumn 2016 – created lectures + lecturing and marking in “Ocean mixing” (OC4910)
Master module about turbulence in the ocean: how to measure it, Fourier transforms, filtering, analysing a turbulence spectrum, where turbulence matters in the ocean (gravity currents, plumes…)

Teaching at the University of East Anglia (UK) 2011-2015:

Autumn 2011 – demonstrating and marking in “Forces of Nature”
Module organiser: Karen Heywood
First year undergraduate module representing environmental processes as a simple laboratory experiment (e.g. melting ice cubes to understand the ice cap melting)
Marking: condensing information into a paper abstract.

Autumn 2012 and 2013 – demonstrating in “Maths for Scientists
Module organisers: Manoj Joshi and Adrian Matthews
“Basic” scientific maths for students with maths A-level: multiple derivatives, integrals, partial derivatives…

Spring 2013 and 2014 – demonstrating and marking in “Atmosphere and Oceans”
Module organisers: Robert Hall and Parvadha Suntharalingham
First year undergraduate module introducing them to the key concepts in oceanography and atmospheric sciences.
Marking: extracting precise information out of science papers

Autumn 2013 – marking in “Calculus and Multivariable Calculus
Module organiser: Nigel Scott
“Basic” maths for maths undergraduate students

Spring 2015 – demonstrating in “Environmental chemistry”
Module organiser: Tim Jickells
