Meet the Team
Our firm currently has three principal scientists. Together, we count on decades of experience and form a proven team with diverse skills and strengths.
Günther (PhD) is a Environmental Scientist and Scientific programmer with a geographic perspective. During his time at McGill University, exploring the configuration and function of river networks has become a passion. He developed a unique river routing model that allows exploring dynamic links between freshwater, terrestrial and marine environments as well as socio-economic elements and infrastructure. He offers in-depth expertise and advise on planning, conducting and communicating scientific questions effectively through research articles, reports, maps, infographics and web mapping platforms.
My main research theme is large-scale hydrology and hydrography. I analyze the terrestrial water cycle of large river basins, continents, or the entire globe and investigate the effects of climate and global environmental change on regional water resources and hydrologic regimes, including floods and droughts. A particular interest of mine is on blending hydrology with practical applications in freshwater biodiversity conservation, including environmental flow assessments, river habitat classifications, assessing the effects of dams on downstream flow conditions, and aquatic ecosystem services. Hydrological models, global data sets, as well as GIS & Remote Sensing techniques are main components of my research projects. In particular, I am contributing to the improvement and generation of high-quality datasets (e.g. river networks, basins, lakes, wetlands) to eliminate some of the most common restrictions for global hydrological modeling.
Mira is an environmental scientist who develops geospatial solutions to aid in environmental conservation. She is particularly interested in freshwater climate change impacts on humans and ecosystems. Mira holds a Master of Science in Geography from McGill University, where she modelled changes to floodplain inundation patterns under climate change.
