Førsteamanuensis

Denise Christina Ruther

Arbeids- og kompetanseområde

Eg er programansvarleg for bachelorprogrammet Geologi og geofare, undervisar i Sedimentologi og bidra med GIS-fagleg kompetanse i fleire bachelor- og masterkurs. Eg forskar på kvartær sedimentologi og geomorfologi samt skredprosessar. 

I am programcoordinator for the bachelor programme in Geology and Geohazards, teach in Sedimentology and contribute with expertise in GIS to several courses on bachelor and master level. My research falls within the field of Quaternary sedimentology and geomorphology and includes mass movement processes.
