JOAKIM RIIKONEN

Senior Researcher

In my research I develop nanomaterials for technical medical applications. The focus is on nanoporous silicon-based materials such as silicon, silica and silicon carbide and their hybrid derivatives. We take advantage of the special properties of these materials in e.g. contrast agents of MRI imaging, drug delivery and metal extraction. I also study how these materials can be produced in environmentally friendly and cost-effective way using principles of circular economy.
