Nordic network on smart light-conversion textiles beyond electric circuits.

Areas of expertise

smart textiles
smart materials
photo-responsive materials
sustainable development


I bring over five years of research experience spanning materials science and manufacturing, encompassing scientific tasks and product development initiatives. Currently, I am pursuing a PhD in Materials Science/Textile Engineering at the University of Turku in Finland.


My doctoral project focuses on light-responsive textiles capable of converting light into functional property changes, aiming to functionalise common garments while upholding environmental sustainability. By integrating functionalities like self-cleaning, self-healing, and color-changing features into fabrics, I am contributing to the EU Strategy for Sustainable and Circular Textiles.

This project is a collaborative effort with esteemed institutions such as Aalto University (Finland), VIA University College (Denmark), University of Borås (Sweden), and Iceland University of the Arts. More insights into our collective work can be found at
