Research

I got my PhD and became Associate Professor in Physical Geography at the Department of Physical Geography, Stockholm University. I work at Södertörn University since autumn 2017. I am very interested in exploiting the uncountable possibilities of GIS and further developing my GIS skills in my research.

Originally I am geomorphologist with special interest in using GIS as a tool, especially for environmental risk assessment and in geomorphological landscape development, but my field of GIS-applicaitions is constantly growing.

Teaching

Currently I am teaching GIS with an emphasis on its applications in environmental sciences. I teach with a combination of lectures and practical exercises and projects. In my lectures I emphasize that GIS is the tool to reach your goal - dont be afraid of GIS, explore its possibilities and reach your goal. Another main point in my lectures is the connection between GIS and reality - the important awareness about where your data come from and what they really show. This includes sources of error and of course copyright issues and correct referencing.

The connection between university education and the labour market is of major importance. I make great effort to keep up to date, to keep in touch with alumni and the organize meetings between my students and alumni.

Ongoing/upcoming courses, spring term 2018:

Statistik för miljövetare (Statistics for environmental scientists)
MKB, miljökonsekvensbeskrivningar (Environmental impact-assessment)
Geografisk informationsbehandling för miljövetare (GIS for environmental scientists)
Bachelor thesis supervision
