About me

  • My main research interest is the aging-related frailty syndrome and
    epigenetics and genetics of aging. I’m also conducting research into aging
    biomarkers, such as the epigenetic clock, cell-free DNA and inflammatory
    markers, and interested in studying how they operate at different stages of
    human aging.
    For a more detailed description of my current research please visit my
    project page: Molecular epidemiological studies into frailty and aging
    biomarkers [1]
    • PhD in Molecular Immunology (Biology of aging), University of Tampere,
    Finland 2013
    • MSc in Molecular Biology, University of Jyväskylä Finland, 2006

  • Current projects:
    • Examining the longitudinal relationship between DNA methylation and
    development of the frailty syndrome
    • Analyzing the genetic and epigenetic determinants and heritability of
    • Assessing the predictive role of frailty on health span, mortality and
