As doctoral students are listed those who work in the Department of Economics and Management or Forest Sciences in the University of Helsinki. In addition, many doctoral students work in research institutes. Contact information can be found from each person's profile in the University of Helsinki research portal.
Teaching of our personnel can be found in the Teachers of Environmental and Resource Economics pages under the Master's Programme in Agricultural, Environmental and Resource Economics.
I am a personal study planner (HOPS supervision) of the MSc program in Agricultural Environmental and Resource Economics. My role is to assist the students in making their study plans. Additionally, I am a second year MSc student in the same program, specializing in the Environmental and Resource Economics study track. At present, I am working on my master's thesis which centres around assessing the economic impact of using biochar in the boreal agricultural soil.
My ambition is to understand better the interaction between the society and the rest of the nature. I study economics and policies associated with combatting eutrophication, management of species invasions and mitigation of other environmental problems. Integrated assessment models, long-term scenarios and dynamic economic optimization are my tools. Currently I study the drivers of the long-term supply and demand of aquatic ecosystem services under climate change and alternative global socio-economic futures.
My research focuses on the development of renewable energy technology. I utilise scenario modelling to explore possible futures of renewable industry development and use these models to identify policies that could boost the development and innovation of renewable technology. My goal is to provide practical policy recommendations that are applicable and relevant to developing clean energy sources and improve energy security.
My research is in the field of Environmental Economics and Natural Resources Management. My main interest is carbon sequestration and storage in agricultural soils. I study these topics using numerical optimization modelling methods.
My research focuses on the intersections between climate change adaptation and natural resource management. I employ cost-benefit analyses and advanced modeling to assess nature-based solutions in mitigating hydro-meteorological risks. My most recent study investigates Finland's forest capital, examining ownership patterns and the distribution of welfare to guide climate policy and adaptative strategies.
I am an expert on partial differential equations and the calculus of variations. I am interested in using the optimal control theory, dynamical optimisation methods and other mathematical tools in environmental and resource economics.
My research subject is ecological compensations, a new mechanism for halting biodiversity loss in Finland. I study the markets for compensations, the metrics for measuring biodiversity losses and gains and the incentives to combine the production of biodiversity and carbon offsets.
My research on environmental and natural resource economics focuses on efficient climate policy. I work as a research assistant in the Economic-Ecological Optimization Group. Recently I have been analyzing the role of forest resources in the European Union’s climate and energy policy.
My research focuses on economic valuation of environmental benefits (incl. marine, inland water and terrestrial environments), choice modelling as well as motivations and incentives. Current project studies non-industrial private forestland owners in the context of biodiversity conservation and climate change mitigation. I'm adjunct professor in environmental and resource economics (since 2017).
I am particularly interested in the economics of environmental policy instruments and exhaustible resource use. My work can be characterized as applied theory and I often use dynamic optimization methods when I model for example mining.
My main research area is environmental and natural resource economics. In my PhD project I study forest markets under climate change policies, optimal forest management and questions regarding carbon leakage. In our work, we apply an interdisciplinary research approach, combining robust economic theory with ecologically and biologically accurate descriptions of natural resources.
I am a natural resource economist who works with international fisheries agreements and management of aquatic ecosystems. In my research I use bioeconomic modelling and game theory. My main expertise is on coalition formation, i.e. which countries can negotiate stable cooperative international fisheries agreements.
My research in environmental and natural resource economics focuses on economic instruments of environmental policy and the development of renewable energy technology. In my current research, I explore both the impacts of overlapping policies on the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme and the effects of renewable energy on real estate markets.
My research focuses on sustainable food consumption and uses the theoretical framework of behavioral economics and the tools of experimental economics and cost-benefit analysis. I have also researched environmental quality competition. As a member of the University of Helsinki Teachers’ academy, I also study the pedagogy of economics education.
My research in environmental and natural resource economics focuses on different ways to reduce nutrient runoff and greenhouse gas emissions from the agriculture in a cost-efficient way. I also study policy coherence between climate and water policies in agriculture. The methods include mainly numerical optimization and theoretical analysis. In addition to research, I work as Science Secretary for the Finnish Climate Change Panel.
My research interests focuses on forest economics, especially water protection in forestry. I study how forest management affects water quality and other ecosystem services in both mineral soils and peatlands. Currently, I also analyze new bioeconomy policy instruments promoting sustainable forest-based bioeconomy.
I have an extensive scientific experience in designing economic instruments and systems to improve the state of the environment. I have collaborated with engineers, ecologists, marine biologists and crop scientists in Finland and abroad. I have studied a wide range of market mechanisms such as emissions trading, water quality offsets, ecological compensations, tendering systems for agriculture and forestry. I am a specialist in issues of agricultural and forest nonpoint source water pollution. I am the Chair of the scientific Finnish Climate Change Panel since 2014, and a member since 2012.
My research on natural resource economics concentrates on economic-ecological optimization of forest resources. My main interest is on the economics of optimal choice between rotation and continuous cover forestry, more specifically on how the economically optimal management regime is solved. In my research, I use numerical methods for dynamic optimization together with an empirically estimated size-structured description on the stand level forest dynamics.
I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Economics and Management. I currently work on topics in food economics, business management, agriculture, and forestry. My previous research has focused on questions in fisheries economics, especially in the context of international fisheries, which I have tackled by econometric methods and bioeconomic modeling.
The research in my group integrates economics, ecology and mathematical methods to understand the management of biological natural resources like forests, fish populations and reindeer. Our approach creates a dialogue between existing scientific traditions and new discoveries found by transferring knowledge between different fields. In proceeding toward new directions we are guided by cross-disciplinarity and the requirements of sound theoretical basis, mathematics, detailed empirical realism and computational methods. This enables harsh progressive and critical reflection of existing science, policy and practice.
My job is to look after the day-to-day work of the Finnish Climate Change Panel and assist the chair in research and advisory tasks
