D.Sc. in Tech., Adjunct professor (dosentti)

I work with the post doctoral researcher funding of Academy of Finland in the Fisheries and Environmental Management Group (FEM) at University of Helsinki. My research interests include Bayesian modelling, environmental management problems, spatio-temporal statistics and Gaussian processes.

Formerly I have been working on population dynamic models in fisheries science in the ECOKNOWS project and on new analysis methods for healthcare process management where I concentrated on Methods for Spatial Epidemiology

I have also profile in Google Scholar and TUHAT research database of University of Helsinki
