I have worked with principles and practises of sustainable water use and governance for over ten years in Finland and internationally, collaborating with research institutes, governments, private sector and NGOs alike. As a Senior Scientist at the Finnish Environment Institute I am responsible for leading and conducting research and development work on water stewardship and transboundary water cooperation. I hold a PhD in water resources management from Aalto University (2016), MSc in Water Science and Governance from King's College London (2010) and BSc in Environmental policy from University of Helsinki (2009).
