Transplant nephrologist in Helsinki University Hospital abdominal transplant center, and an adjunct professor of nephrology at the University of Helsinki. After finishing my PhD about CMV infections after kidney transplantation in 2006, I have continued research as a clinical research fellow in the science Academy of Finland 2009-2011 and as a post doc researcher in Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Germany in 2012. My current research interests are focused on transplant infectious diseases and on epidemiological aspects of kidney and pancreas transplantation. I am also involved in the activities of Scandiatransplant as a steering group member of acceptable mismatch and paired exchange kidney transplant programs, and I am a member of the managing committee of ENCKEP (European Network of Collaboration on Kidney Exchange Programs).
