Sindre Langaas

Norwegian professional in environmental knowledge matters, mostly water or marine related issues at the interface of nature and society. I am currently working as research manager at the Norwegian Institute of Water Research (NIVA; www.niva.no) but with a mixed background comprising positions as senior expert at the Federation of Swedish Farmers, water manager at the County Administrative Board of Stockholm, assistant professor at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), and project and program manager at GRID-Arendal. Once upon a time I did a PhD thesis in which I refined methods and applied them to detect and quantify night-time savanna bushfire activity in West-Africa. From fire to water.
