Researchers and teachers of Agrotechnology
I am a professor of Environmental Technology in Agriculture. My specific research interest is in soil management including soil structure, compaction, conservation tillage methods connected to break-crop systems, biological tillage, precision agriculture, and use of continuous measurements systems to examine the soil processes, machine-soil-crop interactions.
My research is focusing on the investigation of advanced technologies that can improve the energy efficiency and sustainability of agricultural production. These technologies include electrification of agricultural technology, automation of agricultural processes, intelligent systems for measurement and monitoring, and artificial intelligence. The main research methods are virtual simulation and experimental measurements.
My research focuses on the observation of natural and managed ecosystem dynamics across spatial and temporal scales using established and novel sensing techniques. Specifically, I am interested in fusing multi-sensor data for an improved agronomic management and for sustainable agricultural production.
Keywords: multi-sensor data, sensor data fusion, soil and crop characteristics, time series data, sustainable resource use and management in agriculture
I am a research coordinator at the University of Helsinki, Department of Agricultural Sciences. I have carried out research on several aspects of technology and agriculture, the main topics being on quality in post-harvest processing of vegetables, food safety, production hygiene, and agro fibre plants. Some of the focuses in my research have been quality, hygienics, and materials technology and cleanability over a wide application area from agriculture to public buildings. Read more about my research in the database Tuhat profile.
Keywords: surface science, cleanability, food safety, production hygiene
My research topics are production hygiene and non-food fibres. I am also involved in pedagogical research. Read more about my reseach in the database Tuhat profile.
I am working as a university lecturer at the Department of Agricultural Sciences in the University of Helsinki. I have studied energy use and energy efficiency in agriculture, the potential of renewable energy. Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from agriculture and means to decrease them are my interests, too. Read more about my research in the database Tuhat profile.
Keywords: agriculture, energy efficiency, renewable energy
My research focuses on Autonomous Agricultural Vehicles and Robots for arable farms.
Keywords: autonomous robots, machine learning, automation
I am a doctoral student at the Department of Agricultural Sciences. My research focuses on improving water balance of agricultural areas suffering from water shortage. Read more about my research in the database Tuhat profile.
Keywords: drought, arid areas, soil water balance
My research focuses on drones and how they can be used in crop monitoring. In addition I study how different conditions affect drone imaging and the accuracy of crop models created from the drone images.
