Biography

In 1989-1990 I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Indiana University, Bloomington. I have worked as a Senior Lecturer of Environmental Science at the Department of Biology, University of Turku, Finland, since 1992.

Teaching

I gave my first academic course (Problems in Sociobiology) in spring 1984 at the University of Turku. Since 1992 I have been responsible for coordinating the teaching of Environmental Science at the Department of Biology, University of Turku.

Research

My principal research interests include evolutionary theory, urban ecology and environmental history. I have written or co-edited several books (see my CV), most recently The Long Shadows: A global environmental history of the Second World War (together with Simo Laakkonen and Richard Tucker; Oregon State University Press, 2017), and Saimaannorppa ja ihminen. Sosiaalisesti kestävän luonnonsuojelun haaste (together with Minttu Jaakkola and Lasse Peltonen; Into Kustannus Oy, Helsinki, 2018).
