In collaboration with Pekka Malo´s research team, Aalto University
"We aim to raise the economics of forestry under climate change to a new level by applying an interdisciplinary research approach, advanced analytical methods, and an economically strong theoretical basis."
"We concentrate on the economics of carbon storage in heterogenous forests. We analyze how forests can be managed to maximize the combined net-benefits of timber production and carbon storage."
In collaboration with Jouko Kumpula, Natural Resources Institute
"We aim to develop and expand an interdisciplinary dynamic economic-ecological model for reindeer management that supports and expands our understanding of reindeer husbandry as a human-natural resource interaction system as well as a source of income and a traditional livelihood in northern Fennoscandia."
We study the economics of optimal choice between rotation and continuous cover forestry, more specifically on how the economically optimal management regime is solved.
In collaboration with Martin Quaas, German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research
"We study incentive mechanisms to increase carbon sequestration and biodiversity in privately owned forests by applying economic-ecological models."
"The project aims to develop an economical and interdisciplinary understanding on the inclusion of forest carbon sinks in international climate agreements."
We aim to develop the economics of even-aged Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) management. In our research a detailed process-based forest growth model is connected to an economic description of stand management. We apply economic-ecological optimization, simultaneously taking into account the interaction between forests and climate.
