Research Interests

I work on questions related to the sustainability of transport and mobility. I am especially interested in decarbonising mobility and the transport sector in the climate change context. In recent years, my work has been focused on electric mobility but I previously worked, among other things, on the environmental impacts of aviation.

Key topics:

  • Future of transport and mobility, sustainable and decarbonised mobility
  • Circular economy and electric mobility
  • Decarbonisation pathways and scenarios for the transport system
  • Exploitation of modelling and data analysis tools

Educational Background

PhD degree in Environmental Science, University of Lausanne, Switzerland

Master of Science in Technology from Helsinki University of Technology, Finland (now part of Aalto University)
