Studies urban hydrological processes, especially during extreme rainfall events. In my doctoral thesis, I studied the consequences of pluvial flooding in Malmö. One of my core interests is to study blue-green infrastructure (sustainable urban drainage systems) and their function during different rainfall scenarios.
I have earlier worked as a modelling engineer in Krüger A/S (Copenhagen, Denmark) for 5 years. I worked with hydraulic modelling of sewage system, planning of sewage systems, recipients, wastewater treatment plants and flood hazard mapping. During my work in Denmark, I have followed the Danish implementation of the EU Water Framework Directive and EU Floods Directive and the discussion about climate change adaptation of Copenhagen and other cities.

I teach hydrology and hydraulics. So far I have supervised more than 15 students in their master’s thesis, typically on topics related to urban flooding, blue-green infrastructure/SUDS, and hydraulic modelling.
I worked as a teacher in parallel to my engineering job at Krüger for 3 semesters, two semesters as main teacher with examination responsibility and one as assistant teacher. Course: Infrastructure 1, Sewage system. In addition, as I student I taught mathematics as a student mentor for younger students.
In my spare time, I have all my life been engaged in several organisations, most often as a leader. Currently, I am engaged in the board of the Swedish Association for Water. In Copenhagen I worked in a local, environmental organisation and here I led the discussions on how our part of Copenhagen can adapt to more rainfall in the future.
