I have been working in the Finnish Environment Institute since 2000. First, I was a chemist in the inorganic chemistry group at the laboratory being responsible e.g. for nutrient and mercury analytics. Since 2006, I was the leader of the same group and in 2010 I became the head of the metrology team established in the Environmental Measurement and Testing Laboratory. At the same time, I started to do my doctoral thesis on chemical metrology at the University of Tartu, which was completed four years later. Currently, I work as a development manager of the research infrastructure unit and as a visiting associate professor / docent in the universities of Tartu and Jyväskylä.


I have been an author of several scientific papers and research reports, as well as trained and educated experts and students in the area of metrology and measurement quality in the chemical laboratories.
