Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I’m a University Researcher at Finnish Natural History Museum (LUOMUS). The main focus of my work is in systematic conservation planning, climate change impacts and decision-making under uncertainty. I’m particularly interested in spatial conservation optimizations, spanning from reserve network design to cost-efficient management and biodiversity offsetting. I haven’t really specialized myself to any species or taxa, but somehow I often end up working with birds. I also spend way too much time in front of a computer than any self-respecting biologist should.

I’m also involved in the NESP Threatened Species Recovery Hub, based in Australia, co-leading research on biodiversity offsetting with Martine Maron (UQ) and David Pannell (UWA).
