I am postdoctoral researcher in Medical and Biolaw at the University of Helsinki. My research interests relate to legal and ethical aspects of commercialization of new, innovative medical innovations and health technologies. My current research deals with commercialization strategy and market access aspects as well as with regulatory compliance issues of novel, personalised therapies. I was recently involved as a post-doctoral researcher in “Personalised medicine to predict and prevent Type 1 Diabetes” – an interdisciplinary research project funded by Academy of Finland. Besides law, I have gained some significant exposure to life sciences at the University of Edinburgh and been awarded a M.Sc. in Translational Medicine with Distinction. Besides academia, I have practised law as Counsel at Hannes Snellman Attorneys Ltd specialising in IP and life sciences since 2008. I am also a Deputy Chairman of the Finnish Copyright Council. I have been secretary of the Finnish Bar Association’s Exam Committee since 2013. In 2019, the Finnish Bar Association awarded me a legal influencer nomination in the category “Young Attorney” and I was invited to join YAF and elected to the Board of YAF. I am also a deputy member of the research ethics committee of the Helsinki University Hospital (HUS).
