Description of research and teaching

My PhD research focuses on the impact of urban context on ecosystem services, further on the pathway through plant traits. I am now working on the recreational ecosystem services of urban forest in the city of Helsinki. The relationships with development intensity, green infrastructure connectivity, and demographic background are being examined. And prospective models are to be built.

The research aims at figuring out the dominant factors that influence urban ecosystem services at specific scales, and tries to facilitate urban green area planning and management decision procedures.
