Welcome to my webpage!

Inari Helle

I work as a postdoctoral researcher in the Environmental and Ecological Statistics group at the University of Helsinki.

My background is in ecology and environmental engineering, and I have a PhD in Aquatic sciences. I am interested in the interactions between humans and ecosystems: What kinds of impacts human activities have on ecosystems and what we can do to mitigate these impacts. I have studied these topics especially from the environmental risk assessment and decision analysis perspective by using Bayesian methods.

Currently, I study oil spill risks in the Arctic with my HELSUS Fellow funding. I also work with non-indigenous species and biofouling issues in the COMPLETE project.

I am interested in inter- and transdisciplinary research, and I aim at producing knowledge that is relevant for the society and can be used to support decision-making.
