Personal profile


Research interests:

My research focuses on hydrological data analysis and modelling, mainly in urban settings but also in natural catchments. I have worked a lot with real-time applications (monitoring, forecasting and control) of water quantity and quality in sewers and at wastewater treatment plants. Examples are:

  • Short-range precipitation forecasts (NWP and radar nowcasts)
  • Forecasting of flow and water quality in urban drainage systems.
  • Merging continuous ISE signals with daily composite samples for improved NH4+ monitoring in wastewater.
  • Hydrodynamic modeling by linking Python and EPA SWMM5 models.
  • Automatic data validation and model calibration.
  • Assimilation of satellite-based altimetry observations in river runoff models.

I am currently doing an industrial postdoc as a collaboration between the Danish Meteorological Institute and DTU Environment. Here I work with early warning of floods and use of open weather data for hydrological purposes.


I have been part of the teaching teams for a range of different water-related courses:

  • Introduction to climate change
  • Stochastic hydrology
  • Water resources management
  • Integrated urban water quality management
  • Advanced topics in urban water management
