Karin Jönsson

Senior lecturer Karin Jönsson holds a position as associate professor in Water and Environmental Engineering at Lund university. Her main research field is wastewater and water handling in the society, with particular emphasis on advanced wastewater treatment, covering both municipal wastewater and industrial wastewater and biological and chemical treatment methods. The processes in municipal wastewater treatment are the focal point of the majority of her research activities regardless of whether she works with toxicity, biological nutrient removal, hydrolysis or physical-chemical treatment, but adjacent areas such as toxicity testing of industrial wastewaters and treatment of leachate from dump sites are also investigated. A new research area is storm water management in the blue-green city. The research activities are developed and executed in close cooperation with many public and private organisations and companies. Karin Jönsson has also been one of the programme directors of the international Master's programme in Water Resources Engineering at Lund university.
