Researcher profile

Dr Helene Muri

Norwegian University of Science and Technology
Helene Muri is a research professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and holds a D.Phil (PhD) in Atmospheric Physics from the University of Oxford from 2009. After a post-doc at Université catholique de Louvain, Belgium, on ERC Advanced Grant on paleo-monsoons in East Asia, Muri has been working as a researcher in Norway at the University of Oslo on climate geoengineering. Her research has been focussed on Earth system modelling of solar radiation management techniques, contributing to the Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project (GeoMIP) with simulations with the NorESM model. She also serves on the steering committee of GeoMIP and Carbon Dioxide Removal Model Intercomparison Project (CDR-MIP). She has contributed to the reports of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Working Groups 1 and 3. She was the leader on projects “Exploring the potential and side-effects of climate engineering (EXPECT)” and “Potential of bio-energy with carbon capture and storage to limit warming to 1.5°C”, and has more than 60 scientific publications. Muri has been working on the modelling of multiple climate geoengineering techniques, including solar dimming, stratospheric aerosol injections, marine cloud brightening and cirrus cloud thinning, and the interpretation of the climate responses to these over the past decade.
