Since 2/2017 Research associate at Institute of Coastal Research, Helmholtz Centre Geesthacht: Implementation of tides into the ICON-O ocean model.

2006 - 2016 Research associate at the School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, University of Iceland

8/2014 - 8/2016 NKS-B EFMARE – Effects of dynamic behaviour of Nordic marine environment to radioecological assessments: Simulation of bioaccumulation processes along the oceanic food chain around Iceland.

1/2013 – 1/2016 SEAMAN – Spatially resolved Ecosystem models and their Application to Marine MANagement: Implementation of the biogeochemical model ECOSMO into the operational CODE system.

10/2010 -9/2014 MARSÝN – Upplýsingakerfi fyrir sæfarendur í Norður Atlantshafi: Development of an operational hydrodynamic model of Icelandic waters and the North Atlantic
