EEVA-STIINA TUITTILA

Professor

I have strong background in plant and ecosystem ecology linking vegetation and microbial diversity and processes to soil carbon dynamics and greenhouse gas emissions. My major research questions are related to the peatland ecosystems, how they adapt and feedback to global change (climate change, changing management, restoration). I am also interested how the ongoing change in humans’ relationship to nature is impacting ecosystems and how it feeds back to humans.

I received my PhD in University of Helsinki (UH) in 2000. After a postdoc in Canada in McMaster University and Univerité Laval I continued working as a postdoc and Academy Research Fellow in UH. On August 2011 I moved to University of Eastern Finland (UEF), first to work as a university researcher in Forest Ecology and on February 2012 I started as a professor of Forest Soil Science.
