I did my PhD within the field of psychiatric epidemiology and adolescent depression. During by PhD studies I also was involved in clinical epidemiological studies on adolescent mood disorders. In 2010, we established a birth cohort, the FinnBrain Birth Cohort Study, with the main aim of investigating the how early life and prenatal stress shape brain developmental trajectories. I am the co-PI of the highly multidisciplinary Cohort.  My own research activity within the larger cohort is focused on the development of the gut-brain axis and child psychosocial development and the role of diverse prenatal exposures in these processes. My activity as a supervisor is also multidisciplinary as the PhD candidates represent, for example, variety of fields of medicine and psychology. I started in the tenure track position at the Centre for Population Health Research in Jan 2021.
