Biography

I work as a PhD student in FinnBrain Birth Cohort study on gut-brain-axis communications. I recently (2018-12) graduated as medical doctor. 



Research

I am interested in infant gut microbiota development and microbiota associations with infant neurodevelopment. I also aim to study how the gut-brain axis communication is affected by early life exposures including maternal prenatal distress, antibiotic treatments and mode of delivery. Further, the long-term effects of microbiota alterations on child health and development are assessed. My medical thesis covered maternal gestational gut microbiota and maternal obesity and weight gain.
