Post-doctoral researcher Tiina Rissanen (née Virtanen) works in the Department of Separation Science in LUT University. Her PhD project focused on real-time monitoring of membrane fouling and on unveiling fouling mechanisms of ligneous and phenolic compounds. She holds a master's degree in nanoscience, majoring in organic chemistry from University of Jyväskylä.
