Leena Ruha (Pasanen)

Research Interests

I'm a statistician and an applied mathematician, with special interests in Bayesian modeling, spatial data-analysis, time series analysis and penalized linear regression. Especially I'm specialized in developing the statistical scale space methods . I have applied the developed methods on remote sensing, image analysis, climate modeling, and association genetics.

I earned the Doctor of Philosophy degree in the University of Oulu in 2012. Currently I'm working as a postdoctoral researcher in the EBOR-project (Ecological history and long-term dynamics of the Boreal forest ecosystem) where the aim is to understand the effect of factors such as changing climate and human influence on the boreal forest ecosystem over the last 3000 years.
