PhD in Finnish. Teacher and translator of Finnish, English and Estonian. Editor and journalist.

I have taught Finnish to medical students since 2007. My students have been general practitioners, dentists, radiologists, anesthesiologists and more.

I have also translated health related books from English and Finnish into Estonian, for example, The Paleo Diet (Loren Cordain) and Diabetes and the Metabolic Syndrome (Nasseem Malouf).

In 2014 I received my PhD in Finnish (University of Tartu). I have also studied and worked in several other universities, for example the University of Helsinki and University of Tampere (Finland) and University of California, Berkeley (USA).
