 Current tasks

I am currently working as research scientist in the Marine Ecosystem Functioning and Modelling group. For the past years I was working on my PhD dissertation and in project BONUS BIO-C3 concentrating on the impacts of invasive species in the Baltic Sea. I am currently moving towards modelling the Baltic Sea food webs and working in project BONUS BLUEWEBS.

Background

My education is a mix of ecology and marine science. I completed my master’s in marine science in the University of South Alabama, where I studied the direct and indirect impacts of pradation in the Florida Keys coral reefs. In my dissertation I concentrated on the various impacts and interactions of invasive Species in the Baltic Sea coastal ecosystems. Previously I have been working on ballast water management convention related issues at HELCOM and on invasive species monitoring in the Finnish Game and Fisheries research (now Natural resource center).
