Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

Background

I received my MSc from the University of Helsinki in 2008, majoring in ecology and evolutionary biology, complemented by studies in genetics and statistics. I received a 4-year PhD position under the Finnish Doctoral Programme in Wildlife Biology Research (LUOVA) starting in 2010, and defended my PhD thesis "Flight metabolic rate and dispersal in the Glanville fritillary butterfly - from genes to populations" (supervised by Prof. Ilkka Hanski) in May 2014.

As of Jan 2017 I have been working on my postdoctoral research project, which received 3-year funding from the Academy of Finland. The project focuses on the ecology and genomics of toxicity in Heliconius butterflies, a model system in evolutionary biology.
