Auli Niemi is Professor in Groundwater Modeling at Department of Earth Sciences at Uppsala University, Sweden, leading the geohydrology research. Her earlier positions include e.g. Research Professor and Leading Research Scientist at Technical Research Centre of Finland, Visiting Professor at Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm and Research Associate at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, USA. Her research involves modeling and characterization of flow and transport in porous and fractured media, with special interest in multiphase and coupled processes as well as characterizing heterogeneity effects, with applications ranging from energy challenges to environmental protection. Her work is presented in over 140 journal publications and published reports. Recent years her research has had a strong focus on processes related to geological storage of CO2, where she was e.g. the coordinator of the large-scale integrating EU FP7 project MUSTANG (2009-2014) aimed for developing methodologies for site characterization, monitoring and modeling of saline aquifers for CO2 geological storage. She has also held leading roles in several other recent and ongoing EU FP7 projects on CO2 geological storage as well as projects in the Baltic Sea region.
