Current tasks

I work as a researcher in the Marine Spatial Planning Unit in the Marine Research Centre. My tasks includes developing the ecosystem based marine spatial planning concept in the cold and arctic environments, applying human activities, pressures and their impacts to ecosystem in marine spatial planning as well as developing the marine biodiversity offsetting.


I have a Master’s degree in Geography (2014, University of Turku). I have previously worked as project coordinator in the Baltic Marine Environment Protection Commission (HELCOM) and as researcher in the University of Turku. My research interest lies down in developing the ecosystem-based marine spatial planning concept as well as integrating the human pressures and impacts into the cross-border MSP process.

  • Marine biodiversity offsetting (New tools for ecological building at sea)
  • Plan4Blue
