This Friday marks Stephanie´s first management group meeting leading Climate Predictions and Climate Services, a prospect that makes her positively excited. The new leader guarantees that it will be business as usual, for the most part, even though the group now approaches clients in the public sector to a larger degree than before.
As the new name implies the group will spend more time on climate services, in cooperation with the Norwegian Climate Service Centre (KSS). Such cooperation opens up new possibilities for applied research geared towards society. The group will of course continue a substantial production of fundamental research, and projects such as Hordaklim and R3 serve as good examples on how applied science and fundamental research complement each other.
Prior to her new position Stephanie spent around six years at Uni Research, among other things working on the WRF-model: a regional weather prediction and climate model focusing on northern Europe and Norway. Before that she spent five years working at the Geophysical Institute.
