I didn't plan to become a researcher. When I was writing my Master's thesis the world of research began to fascinate me and the researcher's turn of mind arose. I got a doctoral student position here in Oulu and was able to concentrate on my subject of interest, microbial ecology, especially how to use microbes in cleaning contaminated freshwaters and soil. I love to hike and be outdoors and I want to understand the surrounding nature also as a scientist. It is great to be able to do something in practice for the well-being of the environment.
