I am a professor of Environmental Technology in Agriculture. My specific research interest is in soil management including soil structure, compaction, conservation tillage methods connected to break-crop systems, biological tillage, precision agriculture, and use of continuous measurements systems to examine the soil processes, machine-soil-crop interactions.

I am a research coordinator at the University of Helsinki, Department of Agricultural Sciences.  I have carried out research on several aspects of technology and agriculture, the main topics being on quality in post-harvest processing of vegetables, food safety, production hygiene, and agro fibre plants. Some of the focuses in my research have been quality, hygienics, and materials technology and cleanability over a wide application area from agriculture to public buildings.

My research is focusing on the investigation of advanced technologies that can improve the energy efficiency and sustainability of agricultural production. These technologies include electrification of agricultural technology, automation of agricultural processes, intelligent systems for measurement and monitoring, and artificial intelligence. The main research methods are virtual simulation and experimental measurements.

I am working as a university lecturer at the Department of Agricultural Sciences in the University of Helsinki. I have studied energy use and energy efficiency in agriculture, the potential of renewable energy. Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from agriculture and means to decrease them are my interests, too.

My research is focusing on sensor fusion algorithms to evaluate the effects of mechanized tillage operations on soil properties. The goal is to combine information from multiple sources such as the operational data of a tractor, soil measurements or digital imaging by aerial drones.

Keywords: sensor fusion, on-the-go sensors, sensor substitution

I am a doctoral student at the Department of Agricultural Sciences. My research focuses on improving water balance of agricultural areas suffering from water shortage. Read more about my research in the database Tuhat profile.
