Personal profile

Artistic and research interests

I am an associate professor (tenured) in remote sensing in Aalto University, and lead a team focusing on remote sensing and spectroscopy of forests and peatlands (and other vegetation types, too). Since obtaining my doctoral degree (in forest sciences) in 2005 from the University of Helsinki, I have worked in Finland and five other countries in multidisciplinary research teams focusing on forest sciences, remote sensing, atmospheric physics, and climate change. Currently, I am the PI of a consolidator grant funded by the European Research Council (ERC, 2018-2023) and two research projects funded by the Academy of Finland (2019-2021, 2021-2025). I have also completed university pedagogy studies in the Faculty of Behavioural Sciences, University of Helsinki.
