I am professor and chair of forest landscape biogeochemistry at SLU Umeå since 2008. Since 2002 I have been the scientific director for the Krycklan Catchment Study (www.slu.se/Krycklan). I have lead several large research programs focused on process-based understanding of natural and human-induced changes in surface waters in boreal ecosystems. I am in the board of National Research Infrastrucutre (RFI) at the Swedish Research Council (VR) and an expert evaluator for the European Research Council (ERC) advanced grants.
I am responsible for the bi-annual PhD student course Watershed Ecology and Biogeochemistry, which is open for reseach students from all over the world. Next occasion to take it will be in September 2019.
My research is primarily focused on how natural and human processes affect water quality at a landscape scale. I work primarily with processed based research questions in the boreal region, but also with many environmentally relevant questions on how to best manage and protect our waters from human intervention - from the tropics to the arctic. I have to date co-authored ~200 peer-reviewed papers.
