Tutkimuksen ja opetuksen kuvaus

Enthusiasm to make science, and scientists, matter has always been my key motivator. Currently, I am Head of Administration at Helsinki Institute of Life Science (HiLIFE). I support the Director and Board in strategic management and lead HiLIFE's administrative support team.

My research interests encompass spatial population dynamics from demography to how animals move through heterogeneous landscapes, and how human activities and urbanization affect these both. I did my PhD research on the population dynamics and habitat selection of brown bears as part of the Scandinavian Brown Bear Research Project (Sweden) in Metapopulation Research Group (University of Helsinki). During my post doc in Paul Moorcroft Lab at Harvard University (USA) I investigated the interactions of spatial memory, habitat and human development in animal movements using moose as example species.
