Dr. Paula Schönach holds a post-doctoral position at the University of Helsinki in the Department of Environmental Sciences and is the working group coordinator for the Finnish Water Forum. She will be here at UBC Geography for the next few months working on various projects in water history.

Paula is currently conducting a comparative study of the history of ice in Helsinki and Berlin.
