Teaching

Olen aloittanut Turun yliopistossa opettajana vuonna 1997. Olen suorittanut Yliopistopedagogiset opinnot 60 op. Ohjannut useita pro gradutöitä Turun yliopistossa ja väitöskirjoja. Parhaillaan olen virallisena ohjaajana kahdeksassa väitöskirjassa. Vuosien ajan vastasin Aistittavan laadun mittausmenetelmät kurssista Turun yliopistossa lähinnä elintarvikealan opiskelijoilla. Nykyään olen tuntiopettajan lääketieteellisen tiedekunnan Hermoston rakenne ja toiminta kurssilla (vastuullani on haju- ja makuaisti).

Yliopisto-opetuksen lisäksi käyn paljon kentällä luennoimassa mm. AIstimisen yksilöllisyydestä, Yksilöllistä makumaailmoistamme ja Moniaistisen kokemisen ihmeellisestä maailmasta,

Olen päässyt opettamaan niin Lasten yliopistossa kuin Ikäihmisten yliopistossa.
