Research

My research has focused on cyclic population fluctuations of herbivores. During past two decades, I have used both experimental, observational and theoretical approaches for searching explanations to populations cycles of voles and birch-feeding moths in Fennoscandia. Currently, I also work on the project studying biology of the hard ticks (Ixodes ricinus and Ixodes persulcatus) and tick-borne pathogens in Finland.
