Statistics and applied mathematics



I earned the Doctor of Philosophy degree in the University of Oulu in 2012.  I have specialized in developing the statistical scale space methods. I have applied the developed methods on remote sensing, image analysis and climate modeling.  Currently I'm working as a postdoctoral researcher in the EBOR-project , where the aim is to understand the effect of factors such as changing climate and human influence on the boreal forest ecosystem over the last 3000 years.
