Personal profile

Curriculum vitae

I am an associate professor of geoinformatics interested broadly on the approaches and applications of geoinformatics that may support spatial planning, policy and decision-making.

Currently I focus mostly on analysing and understanding human accessibility and mobility in urban and natural environments, and their implications to sustainable urban planning, as well as nature conservation. 

I lead the multidisciplinary Digital Geography Lab that is linked to the Helsinki Institute for Sustainability Science and the Urban and Regional Research Institute. Within the Digital Geography Lab, I lead the research in:

  •  Accessibility Research Group that has been developing methods for multitemporal, multimodal accessibility analyses using open data sources since 2010.
  • Multidisciplinary Social media data for conservation science project that started running in 2016 to develop methods for geosocial media data analysis to inform land use and conservation planning and management.

I am a great fan of open data and open science and interested in the implications of openness to education, research and society. Some thoughts on this (in Finnish) here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i68ZiFDehKw
