Overview

Description of research and teaching

I got my PhD degree in computer science in January 2010. The main target was to develop computationally efficient methods for the normalized maximum likelihood (NML) model selection criterion, which can be used to select the best statistical model for a given observed data set. To gain the maximum computational efficiency, computation methods must be specifically tailored for each individual model family. In the PhD thesis I developed methods that are suitable for simple Bayesian networks.


I joined the Metapopulation Research Group (MRG) in March 2009. In my present work I take part in developing theoretical models for metapopulation research (in collaboration with Professor Ilkka Hanski). The developed models are then fitted to empirical observations and the results will reveal new relevant information of existing metapopulations and their dynamics.

 

I moved to Aalto University in January 2012.
