Personal profile

Curriculum vitae

I am an Associate Professor in Urban Environment and the head of the Mobility Lab at the Department of Geography, University of Tartu, Estonia. 

Back in 2019-2021, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Digital Geography Lab at the University of Helsinki. I worked in the Urban Innovation Action HOPE - Healthy Outdoor Premises for Everyone project, in which we focused on measuring and understanding multiple environmental exposures in travel environments. In the project, the Digital Geography Lab developed a Green Paths routing tool for finding more pleasant walking and cycling routes in the Helsinki region in terms of air quality, noise levels and the presence of greenery. 

Now, while being back at the University of Tartu, I study the experience of greenery exposure in travel environments throughout the seasons and in different soundscape contexts. We also continue our collaboration with the Digital Geography Lab in environmental exposure research, human mobility, and mobile big data research fields. More specifically, we collaborate within the GREENTRAVEL ERC advanced grant led by Prof. Tuuli Toivonen. I also contribute to the Transformative Cities project, led by Prof. Christoph Raymond, as a scientific advisory board member.
