About me

I’m a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Helsinki working in the intersection of bacterial (meta)genomics, probabilistic modelling, and bioinformatics software development. My research focuses on the genomics and ecology of bacterial species that are deemed high-risk pathogens due to antimicrobial resistance.
