Research
My areas of interest and expertise include broadly topics related to climatology, geomorphology, sedimentology and transdisciplinary human-environment processes. In climatology, I am particularly interested in understanding the regional dynamics and general implications of climate change. Connections to geomorphology include aeolian processes (esp. sand dunes, wind erosion, and their climate connections) and hydrological-fluvial processes (esp. denudation, flooding). Most of my geomorphological studies take place in Lapland and Iceland. Regarding anthropogenic systems, urban climates are of particular interest, specifically spatio-temporal variations of climate and their implications to e.g., human comfort, health, road management and urban planning. Combination of anthropogenic and environmental changes forms a broad phenomenon referred to as global change, which is my latest sector of interest. These topics are studied in various projects in Lapland and in East- and South-West Africa.

My typical teaching year forms of the following courses taught either by myself or jointly with other teachers:
MAAN6091 Basics of Geography (jointly), (lecture course)
MAAN7181 Research in physical geography (jointly) (lectures, field class, laboratory work)
MAAN6153 Climatology (lecture course)
MAAN6151 Geomorphology (lecture course)
MAAN7354 Global change (lectures, literature, group work, field excursion)
MAAN7052 Geography colloquium (colloquium series)
