Geoinformatics, regional science, transport geography, economic geography
The strength of spatial analysis and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is in their ability to reveal and simplify complex and extensive phenomena to understandable and manageable forms. My GIS based research covers the fields of geoinformatics, regional science, population and economic geographies, and transport geography. The analytical basis of my work is in applying and developing GIS methods for exploring, planning and optimising processes and structures in geographic context. My GIS analytical experience consists of four main fields: 1) network based accessibility analyses and method development in this field, 2) spatial-statistical/geo-spatial big data and modelling 3) map production 4) large GIS computations and 5) Mixed use of geo-spatial and qualitative approaches, even more powerful composition is formed to tackle problems in dynamic society.
