Previous teaching responsibilities
Introduction to statistical inference 1 and 2
Random variables, basic matrix algebra, random vectors,
Introduction to spatial statistics
Spatial point patterns, geostatistics.
Introduction to sampling based on the 2012
edition of Thompsons book "Sampling" (Springer) and selected
parts of Gregoire and Valentine "Sampling strategies for natural
resources and the environment".
Forest biometrics (Masters level)
This was a master level course in forest biometrics
for the universities of Joensuu and Helsinki, which I gave in 2008-2014.
The course was based on early drafts of Chapters 2-5 of
Mehtštalo and Lappi 2020.
Forest biometrics (Doctoral level)
I have given several advanced courses with slightly
different focus at different times to the Finnish Graduate school
of forest sciences, NOVA forestry network, UEF summer school, and IBS German region. These
courses have covered some of the Chapters 7, 8, 9, and 11 of Mehtštalo and Lappi (2020).
Previous teaching responsibilities in forest planning
I have given theoretical and practical Bachelor and Master level
courses in forest planning in Universities of Eastern Finland and Helsinki in 2006-2012.
The topics of those courses included linear programming, multi-objective optimization,
optimization of forest management within one stand and in a forest area consisting of several stands,
as well as composing a tactical forest plan for real forest owners.
