Personal profile

Curriculum vitae

I work as a posdoctoral researcher at Helsinki Lab of Ornithology at the Natural History Museum. I'm involved in a project about climate change effects on bird communities.

My research focuses on the responses that species communities have to climate change and other environmental change drivers as well as on the factors that govern those responses. I am broadly interested in community ecology, biogeography and species interaction dynamics. In addition, my research aims to provide information for conservation and management decision making at broad spatial, temporal and taxonomic scales. I have worked with various taxa, including trees, birds, fungi and mammals.

I have taught on several BSc and MSc courses as teaching assistant, guest lecturer and responsible teacher. Those courses have mainly handled biodiversity conservation, community ecology, sustainability and statistical methods in ecology. At the moment my teaching duties include only student supervision.
