Biography

My main research topics are microbial interactions, especially ecology of plant-fungal interactions. I am a doctor (docent) of plant-and fungal ecology and I am curating the the collections of Botanical museum and Botanical garden of the University of Oulu.

Research projects:

Osallistava, tutkimuslähtöinen ja elämyksellinen oppiminen (funding: Finnish Cultural Foundation)

Plants in bioremediation of arsene-contaminated soils (funding: Maaperän tutkimus- ja kunnostus ry.)

I am participating to the following projects as a researcher or in the steering group:

Passive hybrid treatment solutions to remove nitrogen and heavy metals from different types of waters in arctic region (Funding: ERDF)

Sieniatlas (Funding: Kone foundation)

Taimistopohjoinen (Funding: ERDF)
