I am a geographer and my special interest is to utilize Geographic Information Systems (GIS) -based methods and statistical analysis to study the processes and phenomena of the society and the environment. At my current research, I focus especially on studying the link between people and nature.

In my PhD thesis, I introduced the accessibility analysis in the ecosystem service research by exploring people’s ability to utilize different ecosystem services and estimating the negative impacts which ecosystems can cause for people.
