Personal profile

Research interests

My ambition |  My ambition is to generate well-being to people and environment by food innovations. My passion is to solve challenges that benefit the industry and the society.

Our team at VTT | The work of the Food Solutions team I'm heading is based on VTT’s vision Food Economy 4.0 where the aim is to develop sustainable and healthy food ingredients and consumer-centric food solutions by agile manufacturing and monitoring. We are developing plant-based ingredients that are more unrefined and exploring Food without Fields technologies, for example by using our cell factory concepts.

My expertise |  My scientific expertise is in bioprocessing of plant materials for food ingredients and food applications. I have studied enzymatic modification of food biopolymers – carbohydrate and proteins – to modify food structure. I have worked on cereal technologies to understand the impact of processing on physiological and technological functionality of high fibre matrices. Recently I have been developing ways to support healthy eating by developing new concepts for food delivery and eating. I like to rethink these processes from the beginning, and develop consumer-centric services for sustainable food chain.
