Curriculum Vitae

I am tenure track professor of geoinformatics, with a keen interest on approaches and applications of geoinformatics in spatial planning. I am particularly intrigued by utilising open and big data sources and novel spatial analyses to support environmental and sustainable land use and urban planning.

I lead the multidisciplinary Digital Geography Lab with particular interest to:

  • Accessibility and mobility: Our Accessibility Research Group (now part of the broader lab) has been developing methods for multitemporal, multimodal accessibility analyses using open data sources since 2010.
  • Social media data for spatial, temporal and content analyses: Multidisciplinary Social media data for conservation science project 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
