Doctoral Researcher, Department of Biology

Areas of expertise

Species-habitat interactions
landscape ecology
spatial scale and conservation planning.


I am a doctoral candidate in the Department of Biology. I completed my master’s degree in 2012 in Isfahan University of Technology in Iran. 


Teaching and organizing a workshop: "An Introduction to Spatial Data Handling and Mapping in R", University of Turku.


Currently, I am studying how the features of 3D-landscapes affect community assembly of birds. I use GIS and statistical analyses to extract patterns of species-habitat relationship at different spatial scales. 

Previously, I have worked on habitat suitability and conservation planning of Asian houbara bustard, an endangered bird species.
