My PhD research focuses on the environmental impacts of seabed mineral extraction and understanding how seafloor exploitation affects marine ecosystems. I am interested in how adverse effects of human activities may be estimated prior to disturbance and how impact assessments may be improved. I examine methods of using biological and geological data to support marine spatial planning and to explore new ways to estimate the environmental impacts of seabed resource exploitation.
I am particularly interested in the ecological role of marine mineral deposits and their importance for habitat formation. In my work I am focusing on studying the ferromanganese concretions in the Baltic Sea.

My PhD research is taking a probabilistic view on decision making criteria and the role of valuation in the various environmental management problems. In general, I am evaluating the currently used assessment and management of marine ecosystems. The main focus of my research is to assess the current decision criteria and methodology used for assessing the environmental status of marine ecosystem and analyze what they actually tell us about the true state of the ecosystem. In my research, I also consider the role of valuation to provide improved and informed management decisions.
