Dr. Mikko Heino
After a first Master degree in advanced agronomy, majored in environment, I worked in France during two years as a project manager in farmers associations.
In year 2006, I restarted my studies in order to complete a Master in fishery sciences
at Agrocampus Rennes, France.
I wrote my Master thesis at the Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences Center of
Agrocampus Rennes, with supervisor Olivier Le Pape.
This thesis deals with anthropogenic disturbance on the nursery function of estuarine areas for marine fish species and is mostly based on data
analysis and modelling.
From November 2007 to April 2008 I worked as a research assistant in the same laboratory.
My research work consisted in developing fish indicators to evaluate the ecological status of estuaries within the Water Framework Directive
(European Union Directive). I also developed an online course for the French virtual University on Sustainable Development.
This course deals with the ecological interests of estuarine and coastal systems.
