Dr., docent, university lecturer (in GIS)
Fields of speciality: Fluvial processes, geoinformatics, remote sensing, hydro- and morphodynamic modelling, climate change, physical geography.
2016-2017: Funding for conducting the measurements of the valuable continuous time series, particularly during winter season, at Tana, Pulmanki and Kokemäenjoki Rivers (autumn 2016–spring 2017). Emil Aaltonen foundation.
2013-2016: Postdoctoral Researcher: Extreme and annual fluvial processes in river dynamics (ExRIVER). Principle Investigator: Dr. Eliisa Lotsari. Funder: The Academy of Finland.
2013-2015: Postdoctoral research project: Extreme and annual fluvial processes in river dynamics. Dr. Eliisa Lotsari and research group. Re-allocated as the PhD research funding (for Maria Kämäri) after Lotsari had been granted the Postdoctoral Research post by the Academy of Finland. Maj and Tor Nessling foundation.
