Biography

I am professor in sensory perception in the Faculty of Medicine. I have PhD in food chemistry and adjunct professorship in flavor chemistry and perception. I am also full professor in sensory food science at University of Helsinki (Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry and department of food and nutrition). I am affiliated scientist at Monell Chemical Senses Center (USA) and used to work there as a postdoctoral fellow at Breslin lab. I am member of research faculty of Medicine. Sandell lab is also called as Senses and Food research team in Finland. I have conducted research as Academy postdoctoral fellow and Academy research fellow. Currenty I am principal investigator in several projects granted by Academy of Finland and Business Finland. The Polak Young Investigator Award and Academy of Finland award for Social impact. I have a certificated qualification in University teaching pedagogy (60 cr) and in Academic leadership program. I have been a president of Finnish Society of Food Science and Technology. I am a chairman of Food Culture Society in South-West of Finland. I am also active member of E3S (European Sensory Science Society) and specifically in both children and taste sensitivity groups. Currently I am very fascinated by individual differences in multisensory perception connected to eating behavior and experiences as well as sensory-based food education for children and adults.
