Doctoral student in physical geography with a focus on biogeochemistry in watercourses.
My research focuses on greenhouse gas emissions from boreal streams in the context of land use and climate change. Main parts of the PhD project will involve monitoring hydrology and biogeochemistry in streams and their riparian zones before and after forest clear-cutting. By investigating hydrological and biogeochemical processes as potential drivers of the sources and pathways of carbon in streams and the riparian zone, I want to unravel how forestry (clear-cutting) and climate change affect the magnitude of greenhouse gas emissions from streams.
My research is linked to ArcticCirc (Climate Impacts Research Centre)
