Kaisa Haukka has a PhD in Microbiology from the University of Helsinki, where she is also an adjunct professor (docent); she has a wealth of experience in different fields of microbiology. She has studied nitrogen-fixing bacteria in the USA (University of Tennessee) and in England (University of York). At the Finnish National Institute for Health and Welfare she developed her expertise in food-poisoning bacteria occurring in humans, animal foodstuffs and the general environment. At the University of Helsinki she studied genetics and ecology of environmental bacteria, including the use of omics-techniques for cyanobacteria research. Her academic and professional experience have given her exposure to both traditional and cutting edge scientific techniques and research methods.

She has worked as a lecturer in both classroom and laboratory settings and also acts as a degree project supervisor. In addition to her practical pedagogical training, she holds a degree in Management and Leadership (Haaga-Helia Applied University) and is skilled in strategic research planning.

Kaisa thrives on the development of new research projects, from the planning phase right through to presentation. This has lead her to continually seek out new collaborative research opportunities and projects. She is especially interested in improving scientific research and inspiring researchers in the developing world.

Kaisa is well on her way to becoming one of the world's eminent experts in the field of European-African research collaboration. She strongly believes that researchers in developing countries can play a key role in the wider research community, contributing not just by supplying to their own local scientific ventures, but by also adding to the worldwide knowledge base in its quest to tackle the most daunting problems facing mankind today.
