About

Born, raised and basically educated in Kalmar, Sweden; higher studies at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm; Post-doc studies at University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa; with the CGIAR centers for the past 15 years, half of the time in Sweden, half in Africa (Uganda and Kenya). I started as a hydrologist, learnt in depth about geographic information systems and remote sensing, and worked a lot with wetlands and development around the world.
