“I spent the first half of my career as a researcher in Finland, Austria, and the Netherlands working with transport, environment and health care issues. I was very inspired by the innovation and technology when working in several large foresight projects.

Every engineer is excited by an interview with an ice cream maker who has got ideas for their machinery from particle accelerators. Developing Gaia’s business was a perfect opportunity for me to combine my passion for finding practical solutions for complex problems and thinking and planning for the future and enjoying dynamic business environment.

A day without learning new things is a boring day. At Gaia, every day is an adventure with innovative colleagues, clients and challenges waiting to be solved.”
