Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

Research interests

I’m an aquatic scientist specialized in algal ecology and applications. My ecological studies focus on the importance of algae in carbon cycling and food webs, i.e. their nutritional strategies (especially mixotrophy), biochemical composition (fatty and amino acids) and genetics regulating their features and functions. My applied algal studies seeks sustainable solutions for global challenges in human nutrition and in animal feeding. At the moment I’m leading a Business Finland –funded TUTLi-project “Levätehdas” that aims to commercialize algal cultivation in Finland.
