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 through taxon, functional and phylogenetic biodiversity patterns to ecosystem functions. I am currently working as Senior Research Scientist at the Finnish Environment Institute's Freshwater Centre.
