My research combines hydrological processes studies using hydrologic and isotopic measurements, remote sensing and numerical modelling to understand ecosystems and impacts of land use and climate change. The research is carried out in collaboration with other scientific fields such as climatology, sociology and ecology in an interdisciplinary setting at university of Oulu and elsewhere to provide sustainable solutions for water management in surface and groundwater systems.
