Coordinator of the StarTree Project,
Besides being professionally related to forests, I mainly enjoy them for recreation. However, in past years, while living in a big city, I lost a bit this contact. After moving to Finland, having the forest at the doorstep, I can again enjoy their beauty and peacefulness for a nice after-work run.
I love all the food related NWFP, like mushrooms, berries, chestnuts. However, I'm a bit lazy to collect them, so I mainly buy them at the local markets or shops.
I'm the head of the Forest for Society research programme at EFI. This Programme aims to generate scientific knowledge and information for a better understanding of the socio-economic importance of European forests.
