Curriculum vitae

My work is a realization of my longing for nature,especially for forests. My slovak master degree in forest ecology (2002, Zvolen University) and PhD degree in ecology (2009, Zvolen University) gave me solid foundations to understand forest ecosystem and its interactions with atmosphere (particularly with tropospheric ozone). In Finland, I enlarge my scientific intersest to forest/atmosphere greenhouse gas interaction. My second doctoral project is called 'CO2, CH4, and N2O dynamics along a boreal forest-mire hydrological ecotone'. As a piece of the puzzle, by focusing on poorly known dynamics of hydrological transition between forest and peatland it complements studies of typical forest (links to SMEARII) and typical peatland (links to Lakkasuo).

I am also working on a project 'Improving soil carbon estimation of GHG inventory' in Finnish Forest Research Institute with aim to improve the modelling estimates of the soil carbon stock change. The soil carbon stock change estimates are needed for the national level greenhouse gas inventories, and are called upon by the Kyoto protocol and UNFCCC.
