Atte Moilanen


Further information on the affiliationPresently, since 1/2018, my position as Research Director is shared between the Finnish Natural history Museum and the Department of Geosciences and Geography. For the past 15 years, my work has been around concepts, methods, software and applications of ecological decision analysis and ecologically based land use planning. This work is at the crossroads of conservation science, geography, applied mathematics and computer science. It facilitates the use of ecological knowledge in well-informed environmental decision making. For projects & funding please see my CV below; for publications see also, e.g., Google Scholar. Earlier, I have worked at UH since 1991, first at the Department of Genetics, then at the Department of Ecology and Systematics, then for 15+ years in the Center of Excellence in metaopulation biology at the Department of Biosciences.
