Mikko Kaasalainen

Mikko Kaasalainen is professor of applied mathematics at Tampere University of Technology (DPhil Oxford, Merton College 1994, mathematical physics). He uses mathematics as an umbrella science for solving interdisciplinary problems in fields ranging from biology to cosmology. The main common feature in most of these are that they are inverse problems: how reliably can you reconstruct what has caused a given dataset -- can you find the truth out there from limited knowledge? In forest science, Mikko's research group works on building comprehensive new-generation 3D and 4D forest models using big data especially from laser scanning.
