My PhD project in the Doctoral Programme in Atmospheric Sciences, Helsinki Univ. gives me the opportunity to visit cool and rare places in the Arctic islands and to use computer models to study the dynamics of the glaciers, ice sheets and ice caps. To discover the secrets of the cryosphere is my passion.
I am always fascinated by the beauty of the nature. At TSB I am trying to link sciences with arts. Through this approach I am hoping to make scientific outcome more approachable by the general public. I am also a Finnish national committee member of Association of Early Career Polar Scientists.

Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats (CRISPR) technology has been used
in genome editing for more than a decade. New applications are discovered all the time. In THIS
NO.3 Thisis is going to talk you through how CRISPR can make treatments for the widest
possible range of human diseases through cheaper and more precise gene editing possible.
One of the most influential physicists of the twentieth century, Prof. Stephen Hawking, has passed away peacefully at his home in Cambridge home in March 14th, 2018. He is a theoretical physicist, cosmologist, author, and director of research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology at the University of Cambridge as well as a great science communicator. He is the author of the international bestseller popular science book The Brief History of Time and has appeared in many movies and TV series, including The Big Bang Theory. In THIS NO.2 we invite you to review three of Prof. Hawking's great contributions to science: The property of the black hole, The quantum origin of the universe and Time traveling with Thisis. Enjoy!
The idea of 'The Hot Important Science (THIS)' comic strips was born in March 2018, Helsinki, Finland during an intensive brain storming session between a researcher and a designing student. THIS's mission is to bring you topically scientific stories, discoveries etc. every month in an easy-to-read format. We do not want to tell you that we spent a whole month on creating the first post because we want you to be objective about THIS. But we do hope you enjoy reading them! Thank you and see you the next month!
There is a organization called the ‘Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)’ doing assessment of climate change.
A trillion-tonne iceberg, measuring 5,800 square km and one of the biggest on record, calved away from the Larsen C Ice shelf in the Antarctic Peninsula between July 10 and 12, 2017.
October is our Climate Change theme month. This month we would like to give you a little taste of Climate and Earth System Science and prepare you for the United Nations Climate Change Conference 2017
