Lassi Päkkilä

I am a researcher focusing on the hydrology of peatland restoration. I graduated in late 2020 from the University of Oulu Environmental engineering master's program, and my master's thesis focused on UAS-monitoring of peatland water table for restorative purposes. After graduation, I have continued research on the subject for EkoSuo, TURNEE, Hydrology LIFE, and Freshabit LIFE projects. My doctoral research focuses on long-term hydrological effects of peatland restoration.
