Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

Research

Most recently my industry-related research has focused on the development of geophysical hard rock mineral exploration and mine planning methods. For example, our COGITO-MIN project 2016-2018 (funded through the ERA-MIN network), in collaboration with research institutions and industry partners from Finland and Poland, aims to develop cost-effective, novel active and passive seismic exploration methods. We are also a partner in the large H2020 Smart Exploration project 2018-2020 (https://smartexploration.eu/). My other research interests include for example utilization of geophysical methods (e.g. ground penetrating radar) in hydrogeological and environmental studies. However, my PhD research focused on quantification of plate motion, and the uncertainties of such motion, relative to the hotspots, i.e., while my current focus is on applied geophysics, my background is in global geophysics.

I am interested in working at the intersection of science and policy,
and have past experience for example on foresight analysis for strategic planning as a part of the ICSU (International Council for Science) Foresight Process, which I had the opportunity to participate in 2010.

 

Teaching

I teach a wide range of courses in applied geophysics. Currently, I am also working on a MOOC course on the methods of applied geophysics in mineral exploration (to be launched by early 2020).

My courses include:

Bachelor`s level (Bachelor`s Programme in Geosciences)

GEOK_101 Geologiset prosessit (Geological processes), 5 cr (one of several lecturers)

GEOK_2042 Kallioperägeologian kenttäkurssi (Field course of bedrock geology), 5 cr (one of several lecturers)

GEOK_2052 Sedimentologian kenttäkurssi (Field course of sedimentology), 5 cr (one of several lecturers)

Master`s level (Master`s Programme in Geology and Geophysics)

GEOM_S2011 Applied geophysics, 5 cr

GEOM_S2012 Field course of solid earth geophysics, 5 cr

GEOM_S2073 Seismic structural studies, 5 cr

GEOM_S2031 Ground penetrating radar, 5 cr
