Senior researcher, title of docent (medication safety) and coordinator of Doctoral programme in Health Sciences


In my research, I have focused on medication safety and medication skills of nurses. I have analysed medication incidents from Finland, England and Wales in collaboration with King's College, London. In 2017-2020 I was working as a post doctoral researcher funded by Academy of Finland and I developed text mining method for analysing free text of medication related incident reports. I am responsible person of the MASI research project that is aiming to study and improve medication safety.
