Hampus Nilsson was honored by the Swedish Hydrological Council with the award of best master thesis within hydrology. In a blog post at the Swedish Water House, SIWI, he describes his jouney from being a student in technical mathematics at the civil engineering program, to a PhD student at the CEC.

"Now I am looking into how nature-based solutions, e.g. parks, ponds and raingardens, can mitigate floods, provide aesthetics and recreation. Essentially, I am doing quantitative research that can help landscape architects and urban planners in their work on creating attractive and resilient cities. It is very challenging and exciting" writes Hampus Nilsson.
