Short biography
Dr. Pekka Teerikorpi (b. 1948) works as Senior Research Associate at Tuorla Observatory of the Department of Physics and Astronomy of Turku University. He has done research in various fields of Galactic and extragalactic astronomy and practical cosmology, with special interest in the selection effects and biases influencing the determination of the cosmic distance scale and the value of the Hubble constant. He has also made excursions to the Milky Way (the rotation curve, interstellar dust), the realm of active galactic nuclei and the problem of the local detection of dark energy. He has co-authored with Yu. Baryshev the book on the history of the Cosmological Principle Discovery of Cosmic Fractals (World Scientific 2002) and has recently written, together with a few other astronomers and exobiologists the book The Evolving Universe and the Origin of Life—The Search for our Cosmic Roots (Springer 2009), telling about the history and spirit of our science.
