I am environmental ecologist and work as a senior research scientist at the Contaminants Unit. Previously I have worked as a researcher at the University of Helsinki, and I studied natural attenuation and bioremediation of organic contaminants in soil and water. I did laboratory work, e.g. chemical analyses and I used molecular techniques when I studied bacteria by their DNA. Last years I have focused my research in environmental impacts of mining and worked in several projects such as Sustainable Acceptable Mining (SAM), stress testing of Finnish mines and Adaptation Actions for a Changing Arctic (AACA –project,


I also have education in business and experience of operating business of my own, so the demands of the business world are familiar to me.



At the moment I have focused on doing research about chemicals in circular economy.


  • Chemicalization of the environment
  • Hazardous substances in circular economy
  • Organic contaminants
