Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

My research interests are related to aquatic pollution/disturbances in lakes, rivers and sea ecosystems. My PhD research dealt with impacts of mine water on boreal lakes. I am a certified scientific (AESD) and commercial (IDSA*) diver, with over a decade of experience on occupational research diving in environmental impact monitoring and assessment projects. In addition, have worked in numerous popular science projects; e.g. online exhibition (in finnish) and a textbook (in finnish).
