New PhD student

Finally, on May 1st 2021, almost a year after the start of the project, Elinor Tessin started as a PhD student on the project. She is from Bonn, Germany, but did her master’s in Bergen at the department of Biological sciences.

It was a struggle for her to enter Norway because of Covid regulations, but we found a “loophole” and sent her on a two week cruise organized by Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center (NERSC) with the coast guard vessel KV Svalbard – in the Svalbard area. She barely had a couple of days rest after finally arriving in Bergen before she joined the EcoSens project fieldwork in Marifjøra the following week. What a start to her PhD in Norway! Her role in the EcoSens project is mainly focused on remote sensing, and we are very excited to have her on board!
