This is Matti Pastell’s homepage. I work as a University lecturer in the Department of Agricultural Sciences in the University of Helsinki. I am also a member of the Research Centre for Animal Welfare This webpage contains information about my research, teaching and software projects. I don’t really blog, but I occasionally post small tips usually related to research and computing.
My research work handles mostly the use of technology in animal welfare research. I am interested in developing automated systems to predict animal health problems and automatically monitoring animal behavior i.e. Precision Livestock Farming (PLF). I have mostly worked with lameness in Dairy Cattle, but I am also involved in many other projects involving pigs, turkeys, horses and dogs. I work in close cooperation with the Veterinary Faculty and the Department of Animal Science from our University and several international partners. Have a look at my CV and list of publications for more info.If you have any questions or comments you are very welcome to contact me.
