Associate professor (tenure track), Geoinformatics
Tuuli Toivonen is a tenure track professor interested in the use of open and big data sources and novel spatial analyses to support sustainable spatial planning and decision making. Tuuli, together with her Digital Geography research group concentrates on analysing human mobility and accessibility, as well as advancing sustainable land use and conservation planning, using data sources such as social media data, mobile phone data, remote sensing and GIS data products. The group aims to be a forerunner in open science practices, sharing openly their research based tools and research data. Research is conducted at various spatial scales from Finland and South Africa to continental and global scales. While Tuuli is the youngest professor at the department, she has been teaching geoinformatics for more than 20 years in academia and in private companies in Finland, UK and Peru.
