Malin Waage started working as researcher at the Western Norwegian Research Institute in august 2022. Malin has a Ph.D in Marine Geology and Geophysics from the University of Tromsø - The Arctic University of Norway. During the PhD and a following two-year post-doctor she was a part of CAGE – the Centre for Arctic Gas Hydrate, Environment and Climate. Here, she developed and tested methods on using high-resolution seismic as a time-lapse tool for environmental monitoring and studied climate related variations of methane seepage in subseafloor sediments in the Arctic. Between her MSc and PhD she worked some years offshore in the company Baker Hughes, where she was responsible for well-monitoring, data collection and bottom hole sensors and equipment measuring rock properties during drilling operations. Throughout her career she gained a broad experience in collecting and processing various marine data. Data analysis, digitalization, technology development, climate and sustainability are of matters that interest her.
