Biography

I am a geographer with a long career as the researcher of the sustainability of the rural environments experienced as university teacher of the agri-food issues, physical and regional geography and geoinformatics. I have been leading and involved in numerous research projects e.g. on the management of the nationally valuable landscapes (funded by Ministry of the Environment 2003-2006), the visual monitoring of the agricultural landscapes (Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry: MYTVAS I, II, III 1996-2014), rural-urban land use preferences (Helsinki University Environmental Research 2003-2006); the livelihood security in the changing socio-economic environments in India (Academy of Finland 2009-2014) and the integrated coastal land use planning in Finland and Estonia (EU/ERDF Interreg Central Baltic Programme 2016-2019).
