Sofia Thorsson

Professor of Physical Geography. She received her doctoral degree at University of Gothenburg in 2003. She coordinates several disciplinary and multidisciplinary research projects.


Fredrik Lindberg

Associate professor in Physical geography. Recieved his PhD in urban climatology at the University of Gothenburg in 2007. Has since then worked for the City of Göteborg as a GIS-engineer and as a post-doc at King's College London, UK. Currently he is working on a climate service tool (UMEP). 


Björn Holmer

Assosiate professor emeritus since 2009. Still active as researcher within GUCG focusing on wind, structure, humidity, sky view factors, energy fluxes and air pollutions. 


Janina Konarska

She comes from Poland. In 2011 she started PhD studies within the group and received her doctoral degree in 2015. Her thesis was titled 'Climate regulation provided by urban greening - examples from a high latitude city'. Her research interests include spatial and temporal variability of the urban bioclimate and influence of vegetation and land use on thermal comfort in cities.


Marie Häger-Eugensson

Marie is a senior researcher and climatologist specializing in urban climatology, impact and evaluation studies of air pollutions and climate, especially the linkage between local climate processes and air pollution in urban areas. She has been involved in several major and minor research projects national/internationally and is involved in FAIRMODE a joint response action of the European Environment Agency (EEA) and the European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC) to harmonise modelling in EU and draws up future guidelines for dispersion modelling in Europe. She has also been chairman of the Swedish Clean Air Society (SLF) for 8 years.


Nils Wallenberg

Started as a PhD candidate in the Urban Climate Group in September 2017. Got his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Earth Sciences, majoring in Physical Geography/Climatology, from the University of Gothenburg. 



Yvonne Andersson-Sköld

Her research is dealing with physical processes focusing on chemistry and geology as the basis for sustainable planning and climate adaptation at the local and regional scale. She also develops techniques and methods to integrate natural science knowledge in various decision processes.


Zack Norwood

Zack Norwood specializes in energy systems research related to renewable energy and building energy efficiency. His projects at Göteborg University include modeling future pathways for energy and resource consumption in urban environments, solar power in the future European electricity grid, and passive house renovations with building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV). Zack is an alum of the Energy and Resources Group at the University of California, Berkeley and also holds degrees in electrical and mechanical engineering.  

David Rayner

David Rayner is a researcher with the Department of Earth Sciences. His research area focusses on statistical downscaling and bias correction of climate model simulations to support climate-change impact assessments.


Liyue Zeng

Started as a PhD candidate in Chongqing University, China in 2015. She does research in urban micro climate, building energy performance, and urban wind environment. Currently working on the coupling of building energy model and urban micro climate.
