Petteri Muukkonen

Petteri Muukkonen is a university lecturer in geoinformatics. I’m a geographer, and specifically I have a strong background in biogeography and in geoinformatics. I have mainly studied various biogeography and forestry themes in the boreal forest environment. For example, I have studied carbon sequestration and carbon cycle, biomass surveys and monitoring, spatial autocorrelation of soil characteristics, landscape fragmentation, habitat changes and remote sensing of forest landscape.Geoinformatics (GIS and remote sensing) has been present in some way in all of my research topics. Among my research career, I have also a teacher qualification to act as a subject teacher of geography and biology. Since my background as a teacher I have currently expanded my research topics to cover also pedagogy of geography.
