Hydrological connections between the surface and deep groundwater system in periglacial landscapes during and following deglaciation. My research is based on the application and development of cryo-hydrological numerical modelling tools. Other methods used include electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) and hydrogeochemical analysis. Main field sites on Svalbard (Nordenskiöld Land) and Greenland (Kangerlussuaq area). Permafrost groundwater springs, pingos, subpermafrost groundwater.
