I am an archaeologist with a particular interest in wetlands. My main research topics concern Stone Age wetland archaeology, fishery studies, waterlogged wood, detection of paludified and submerged sites, and archaeological prospection with, e.g., archaeogeophysics and LiDAR. I am a docent in wetland archaeology at the University of Turku, Finland, and, currently, I work at Museum Lolland-Falster, Denmark, on a project (SylFish) concentrating on the Stone Age fishing techniques in the prehistoric Syltholm Fjord area in southern Lolland.
