Christian Stranne, assistant professor, Dep. of Geological Sciences

Christian Stranne received his PhD (Nov 2012) in Physical Oceanography from the University of Gothenburg, where he studied large-scale Arctic sea ice dynamics and coupled ocean-sea ice-atmosphere interactions. He has held a two-year postdoc position at the Department of Geological Sciences (IGV), Stockholm University, focusing on methane hydrate dynamics and numerical modelling of multiphase flow in hydrate-bearing marine sediments. Christian became a Swedish Research Council Postdoctoral Fellow in 2015 (three years) during which he shared his time between IGV and the Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping at the University of New Hampshire, USA. He has since expanded his research to include geophysical mapping with acoustic methods, and in 2017 he received a four-year grant from the Swedish Research Council (co-applicant), for a project on acoustic detection of internal waves in the ocean. Christian became an Assistant Professor in August 2018 and in November the same year he received a four-year grant from the Swedish Research Council for a project on large-scale climate warming-induced seafloor release of methane gas.

Christian’s field work experience includes five major icebreaker expeditions to Antarctica and the Arctic Ocean, as well as several cruises with smaller vessels in Sweden and in Chile. His field work expertise lies within acoustic mapping, CTD and LADCP operations, and mooring deployments/recoveries.
