Personal profile

Artistic and research interests

Multidisciplinary R&D collaboration and applied geosciences,  PhD focused in hydrogeology from University of Helsinki. Recent examples include AMD, mineral composition and electro-chemical characteristics of low sulfide mining tailings, mineral interactions in forest soils affecting growth of certain fungal species. Ongoing research activities focus on the use of remote laser-techniques in assessing mineral composition and engineering geological properties or rocks.
