About me

Fernando Jaramillo holds a Ph.D. in Physical Geography from Stockholm University with focus in hydrology and freshwater resources. He studies the historical effects of both climate change and land and water use on freshwater availability and changes, from local to global scales. His main areas of research are hydroclimatic change via de Budyko framework, human water consumption, hydrogeodesy via InSAR and human impact on wetlands.

-Head(Co) of the Hydrology, Water Resources and Permafrost Unit (HWP)
