I’m a researcher and senior lecturer at the Division of Geology and my research interest mainly focuses on groundwater issues even though I have experiences from other disciplines such as reconstruction of sea-level changes and isostatic adjustment modeling. The groundwater research focuses on occurrence, fate and behavior of organic and inorganic contaminants in groundwater and sediments within the groundwater system, as well as changes in groundwater quality over time and investigation methods of groundwater conditions.
I have especially been working with occurrence and behavior of pesticides in groundwater (the Pegasus project) and ammonium and arsenic contamination of drinking water resources the Amonas project) as well as age determination and mixing of groundwater and its relationship to contaminants (Region Skåne/SGU-financed project). Currectly my group is involved in the Trust-project (Transparent Underground Structures 2.1 and 2.4) concerning "Geoelectrical Imaging for Site Investigation of Urban Underground Infrastructure" and "Combined investigation methods in underground construction projects - monitoring water quality changes with geoelectrical measurements". We are also involved in a project concerning "Non-invasive characterization of contaminating chlorinated ethenes in soil and groundwater using compound-specific isotope analysis (CSIA) and geoelectrical imaging (DCIP)" within the ACDC project.

I teach and manage courses in geolgy focusing on environmental aspects such as groundwater pollutants and methods for groundwater investigation (GeoP05 Hydrogeology), landfill construction, rules and regulations concerning landfills as well as investigation and monitoring thereof (GeoC06 Land Use and Waste disposal). I also teach on the subject of contaminated land and management thereof (GeoP04 Environmental Soil Investigations) as well as medical geology (GeoC02) and at the first introduction course on geological aspects for Environmental Science students (GeoA80 Earth, Water and the Environment).

I try to involve bachelor (GeoL01) and master student (GeoR02) projects within our research projects and help students networking with professionals within the environmental sector such as authorities, consultants, entrepreneurs, other universities as well as the public. I enjoy the interaction between different societal sectors to improve the knowledge and state of our environment.  See for example the knowledge project "Lilla Klåveröd" where the SGU price winner for best student project 2014, Jorunn Falkenhaug, has written about groundwater and the hydrogeological cycle at a small area at Söderåsen, Scania. See also the film about Jorunns work and Lilla Klåveröd. Together, we can all make an impact for a better environment and protection of our water resources!
