SGAC Start of Term (date): 16 Dec 2016
Biography:

My name is Marie, and I'm a cybernetics and robotics M.Sc. student at NTNU in Trondheim, Norway. I'm currently writing my final project on automatic characterization and image corrections of a hyperspectral imager, as a part of the NTNU SmallSat team. The HSI will be the payload on a small satellite called HYPSO (Hyperspectral Survaillance of the Ocean), that will investigate algae blooms along the Norwegian coastline.

In the spring of 2018 I spent a semester at UNIS in Longyearbyen, Svalbard, where I took courses in 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.
