I am a Biotechnology Professional graduated from Tampere University of Applied Sciences with a Bachelor’s in Laboratory Sciences. As an ERASMUS exchange student I was studying Forensic Science and Biomedical Science in Glasgow Caledonian University in 2012. I am fluent in English and have worked and studied in environments where English is the spoken language.
I was doing my laboratory training in BioMediTech in Finland. I have honed my skills in Genetics and Molecular Biology by using a fruit fly as a model organism to study mitochondria. These studies have given me knowledge about biomedical science including mitochondrial diseases, mitochondrial DNA, and alternative electron transport chain enzymes. As a member of high-valued research group, I was able to improve my practical skills in microscopic imaging and also caring, rearing, and analyzing the fruit flies.
I have also experience in laboratory with many manual and automatic chromatographic and spectrophotometric techniques including the PCR, HPLC, and GS instrumental techniques. Within the Biosciences, I have practiced all the widely used microscopic, staining and incubation techniques. In my earlier career I have done journalistic works, mostly as a freelance journalist. This job required strong social and interpersonal skills and taught me to work under the pressure of a deadline.
Laboratory Trainee Tampere, Finland

The main task was learning to identify, maintain, and cross different phenotypes of Drosophila and also rear the flies. Basic skills were connected to more complicated and demanding projects such as understanding of the signaling pathways in cells and the effect of rescue genes in mitochondria.
