Since August 1993 employed as Senior Scientist at the Department of Atmospheric Environment. Previously employed 1½ year as Assistant Professor as Odense University. Ph.D. (in 1992) and M.Sc. (1988) work was carried out at Joint Research Centre of the Commission of the European Communities. Danish principal Investigator in EUROTRAC II, subprograms: Tropospheric Ozone Research (TOR) and Mercury and Persistent Organic Pollutants (MEPOP).


Research Interest:

Present research activities are on the fractionation and fluxes of atmospheric mercury, which aim on describing the fate of mercury from emission to the atmosphere at mid latitudes, transport and chemical transformation until it is finally deposited in the Arctic.
