The focus of my PhD is studying drug resistance in cancer from and epigenetic point of view. You don't know what epigenetic is? Then you should tag along to one of the Afternoon in The Science Basement and I will tell you all about it :-) To carry out my research I use both biological experiments and computational tools.

I think a scientist's responsibility is not only to produce new knowledge but to also make it accessible to the public. Here at TSB I am trying to experiment new ways of doing science outreach. I am also one of the main organizers of TEDxHelsinkiUniversity 2017.
