Personal profile

Short bio

I have worked for VTT 19 years in the area of risk analysis and management including climate, water, environmental, cyber-physical risks; crisis management including critical infrastructures, cyber-physical risks and municipality-level risk assessment. During last years I have focused on resilience management including resilience of critical infrastructures (EU SmartResilience project) and resilience of the most vulnerable groups (EU BuildERS project). My dissertation deals with the stakeholder co-operation in identification and anticipation of technogenic risks basing on the theory of socio-technical transition. 

Research interests

I am keen on studying especially co-operation between authorities regarding technical issues, i.e. among critical infrastructures. I believe that this co-operation will improve wellbeing in general level when we can integrate new innovations into people's everyday life.  I am also inetersted on resilience of critical infrastructures in the cases of man-made or natural disasters.
