I am an ecologist-biogeographer interested in biodiversity of all kinds of organisms inhabiting the Earth. My research focuses on both aquatic and terrestrial systems, ranging from topics like rarity and commonness through biodiversity patterns and underlying mechanisms. I am currently working as a Senior Research Scientist at the Finnish Environment Institute's Freshwater Centre. I am an associate editor for Ecography, Journal of Biogeography and Journal of Applied Ecology.
Feel free to send me email if you would like to talk about issues related to biodiversity or wish to collaborate with me on these fascinating topics. Check out our research group's web page for more information about my research here.
My research goal is to help understanding, conserving and saving diverse biotas and healthy ecosystems in a changing world.
