School of Forest Sciences, Faculty of Science, Forestry and Technology

I’m a doctoral researcher at the University of Eastern Finland’s School of Forest Sciences. In my research, I study human-forest relationships (HFRs) of Finnish forest professionals. I explore how their HFRs are formed; how these HFRs affect to their professional identity and manifest in forest-related conflicts.

I also work as a Project Researcher in Academy of Finland’s UNITE Flagship Programme , in which we are using game-based technologies to explore people’s experiences of different and differently managed forest environments.

I’m a board member in Human-Forest Relationship Research Club, the newly formed science club of the Finnish Society of Forest Science.
