Description of research and teaching

RESEARCH INTEREST

The aim of my PhD theses was to study whether stress related factor associate with cellular aging, measured by leukocyte telomere length (LTL), and thus, if LTL could function as a novel mechanism linking stress to aging related diseases and mortality. This multidisciplinary research was conducted in Developmental Psychology Research Group in collaboration with The National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL). My other research interests include effects of sleep, recovery and stress on development and well-being.
