Igor Ezau (Esau)


Professor / Group Leader Renewable energy

Job description

I am a professor at UiT working with meteorology and climate in the Renewable Energy Group. My research interest are tightly linked to UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): SDG-7 Energy; SDG-11 Sustainable Cities; and SDG-13 Climate Actions. My current research focuses on diversity of local climates - the climate of the planetary boundary layer, urban climate issues, socio-environmental interactions in aspects related to atmospheric processes and phenomena.
