She is a researcher in long term changes of extreme weather phenomena under climate change, specializing in the statistics of extreme and high impact weather and climate events. Her focus is on making climate science communicable and relevant for decision making. Mari graduated from Newcastle University (UK) in 2012 after interning with the Scottish Government in their Climate Adaptation Policy team.
Prior to her PhD Mari practiced as a Civil Engineer for ten years with CH2M and AECOM. Her principle focus was on river and coastal flood mitigation and control.
