Global Development Manager
I enhance engagement in education and research with partners in the Global South. I help forge partnerships, identify funding opportunities and promote the global responsibility actions of the UEF community.
I also coordinate several food and nutrition intervention and capacity building projects implemented by UEF in the Global South. I am the programme leader for the Master's Degree Programme in Green Biotechnology and Food Security and team leader of the project FishEDU: Capacity Building for Fisheries and Aquaculture Education in the Kyrgyz Republic (www.uef.fi/fishedu).
I am also currently working on my doctoral degree in UEF’s environmental policy research group in the Faculty of Social Science and Business. My research focuses on the role of Finnish higher education institutions in enhancing global food and nutrition security. I also work on fisheries and aquaculture research in UEF's research group in aquatic ecology and behavioural ecology.
