I completed my master's degree at the University of Eastern Finland and pursued my PhD at the University of Montreal under the supervision of Professor David Zargarian. I specialize in organometallic and organic synthesis. After earning my PhD, I sought a field where I could apply my expertise in synthetic chemistry. I subsequently took up a postdoctoral position in the Department of Molecular and Medical Pharmacology at UCLA. I am working on a collaborative project between the labs of Professor Michael Van Dam and Professor Jennifer Murphy. My current research focuses on developing cost-effective methods to produce diverse PET tracers for both research and clinical applications.
