About:

I'm the coordinator of National Chemistry Education Centre, University of Helsinki, Finland and also the Coordinator of ChemistryLab Gadolin -visitors centre at the Depatrment of Chemistry, University of Helsinki. I'm also a member of IYC in Finland -management committee and in other committees involvelved with IYC in Finland.

My passion is to work inbehalf of chemistry education and to improve the general awareness of chemical innovations. As a coordinator I work together with a lot of organizations and other partners in many projects that I'm working on. I hope that during IYC we can make chemistry fun, innovative and interesting to learn about. The world needs more chemists and people who understand chemistry!
