I am an Associate Professor in remote sensing of forests. I have a MSc in mechanical engineering, a PhD in experimental mechanics and have a long experience in optical metrology and signal analysis for measuring different materials and natural resources. As a whole my research has covered different measurement challenges, such as extracting tree stem profiles from laser data and evaluating the quality of the fibers in pulp. The most recent years I have focused my work on remote sensing of forests. This has included research on estimating timber volume, wood quality, tree species and biomass; using digital aerial images, satellite images and data from airborne and ground based laser scanning.
