Information om forskning och undervisning

I'm broadly interested in the ecology and evolution of host-parasite interactions and parasite-parasite interactions. I did my master thesis in Team::Antzz with the activation of immune defense and my PhD thesis in Jukka Jernvall's lab on the dynamics of intestinal parasites in mouse lemurs. I have spent years 2016 and 2017 in University of Zürich where I studied the environmental, genetic and individual effects on the microbiota of ticks and especially on the tick-borne pathogens. 

Since the beginning of 2018, I have been working on Helsinki Urban Rat Project, with the aim to map the population structure and dynamics of urban rats in Helsinki and to look what parasites and pathogens they are carrying.

Generally, I like doing both field and laboratory work and I have used both the cutting-edge molecular tools and traditional morphological tools to identify parasites. While I enjoy working both on evolutionary parasitology and disease ecology, lately my work has been more ecology-related.

In addition, I have been visiting scholar in the faculty of behavioural sciences since 2016. I work the on biology education and didactics. My current research project relates to how upper secondary school teachers and students perceive the concept of gene and how they understand gene function. In additional, I have studied the use of mobile augmented reality games in learning biology.
