Focus of Research:
Studing the effects of large-scale human impacts on animal communities and adaptation of northern populations on changing environmental conditions.  Main research is focused on the effects of urbanization, forestry and tourism on bird communities, populations and individuals.  Leading the Environmental impact assessment and nature inventory services at the Arctic Centre.  Worked as a project coordinator in EU LIFE Environment project "Tourist Destinations as Landscape Laboratories --Tools fo Sustainable Tourism (LANDSCAPE LAB)".

Tutkimusintressit kohdistuneet laajan mittakaavan ympäristömuutosten eliöstövaikutusten tutkimiseen.  Eräänä tutkimusalueena on eläinten sopeutumisen pohjoisiin, muuttuviin ympäristöolosuhteisiin.  Päätutkimusaiheet liittyvät kaupungistumisen, metsätalousen ja matkailun aiheuttamiin muutoksiin lintuyhteisöissä, -populaatioissa ja -yksilöissä.  Vetää Arktisen keskuksen Luontoselvitys ja YVA-palvelua. Toimi koordinaattorina EU LIFE Ympäristö-hankkeessa "Matkailualueet maisemalaboratorioina --Työvälineitä kestävän matkailun edistämiseen (LANDSCAPE LAB)".
