Personal profile

Artistic and research interests

I am interested in natural, bio-based dyes and their functional properties, and colours as a cultural communication mode.

In the Herbiviral-project, we are interested in the antiviral abilities of certain natural dyes and their compounds, and how this effectiveness against e.g. coronaviruses can be withheld on textile surfaces. I am working on Aalto Networking Platform Seed funding, to find collaborators and to apply for outside funding for the project. At Aalto University my main partners for this project are Janne Halme and Ali Tehrani.
