Current PhD supervision

I am  co-supervising the research work carried out by Sara Lindersson at Uppsala University.

Sara is interested in exploring how Earth observation can advance our understanding of worldwide water disaster risk. Sara makes use of planetary-scale geospatial datasets and worldwide archives to analyze dynamics between hydrological extremes and societies, through quantitative GIS analysis.

I am co-supervising the PhD research work carried out by Shuang Hao at KTH, on Effects of Climate Fluctuations on Water Reservoir Operation Planning. 

The goal of her study is to account for effects of climate change on hydropower operations by developing statistical methods for assessing relevant climate indicators, develop methods for including these indicators in long-term operational planning models and assess the relative importance of climate fluctuations for hydropower production. In particular, Shuang will apply the climate-driven optimal management on the hydropower system in Dalälven River Basin in Sweden.


I am also co-supervising the PhD research carried out by Riccardo BIella at Uppsala University. Riccardo's focus is on conceptualizing the nexus between climate service and adaptation in socio-ecological systems. 

The aim of his research is to analyzing and developing models of human-climate interactions to extreme events across spatial and temporal scales with a focus on adaptation and climate services.
