Pekka M. Rossi has a 10 years’ experience on groundwater resources management and water supply studies. Rossi is concentrating in his studies on groundwater-surface water interactions, water supply questions, integrated management and different water quality/quantity monitoring methods. He has a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary research collaborating e.g. with sociology, ecology, and geology. Rossi has published 29 international  publications, is co-supervising 4 PhD students and 5-10 master’s thesis yearly. He has been involved in several international projects and he is currently researcher in e.g. in ON-SITE and SUPER projects.
