My name is Marie, and I'm currently doing my PhD at NTNU in Trondheim, Norway. My focus is on calibration and characterization of hyperspectral imagers to be used in drones and small satellites. At NTNU I'm specifically working on our imager that will be the payload on a cubesat called HYPSO (Hyperspectral Survaillance of the Ocean), that will investigate algae blooms and other oceanographic phenomena along the Norwegian coastline.
I finished my M.Sc. in Cybernetics and Robotics at NTNU in June 2019. In the spring of 2018 I spent a semester at UNIS in Longyearbyen, Svalbard, where I studied ionospheric physics and radar diagnostics of space plasma. The courses included fieldwork at the Kjell Henriksen Observatory (KHO) and the EISCAT Svalbard Radar (ESR). The following summer I had an internship at Andøya Space Center, working on a cloud detection system for the ALOMAR observatory.
