I work as a senior coordinator in the Programme for Environmental Information. The last three years I have worked as National Focal Point (NFP) for European Environment Agency (EEA) in Finland, coordinating our national European Environment Information and Observation Network (Eionet). My other tasks are related to environmental reporting obligations; INSPIRE directive and land monitoring & GIS.


My main subject was physical geography but I have also studied regional planning, geography, biology and computer sciences. I have worked in SYKE since 2000, at first in Division of Water Resources Management where my tasks were related to implementation of Water Framework directive. After that I have worked in Data and Information Centre as a GIS specialist in European and Finnish land monitoring projects.
