My name is Rachel and I am a Senior Research Scientist at SINTEF Ocean in Trondheim Norway. The first time I went to the US as a Fulbright Scholar, I was a Post Doc at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Norway.
The last time I went, I was awarded the honour of being Fulbright Arctic Chair for 2018-2019 to work with my friend and colleague Elizabeth Nyman at Texas A&M University at Galveston this year, with a focus on the international management of marine plastics and the effects it will have on the emerging Arctic Ocean, which is already under stress because of warming waters melting the ice.
I have four children born 2001, 2004, 2008 and 2013 and a small chihuahua girl called Choco. We love exploring the world and we laugh a lot 🙂
