PhD Heikki Aisala has joined the Food Solutions team at VTT as a Research Scientist. He has a background in Food Chemistry and he will be focusing on studying the sensory properties of foods and food ingredients developed at VTT. Additionally, his research interests include linking the sensory properties to chemical and physical measurements and consumer acceptance with multivariate statistics.

Aisala defended his doctoral dissertation (link) “Sensory Properties and Underlying Chemistry of Finnish Edible Wild Mushrooms” in the University of Turku in the beginning of May. The aim of the thesis was to determine the sensory properties of selected wild edible mushroom species and to examine which volatile and non-volatile compounds would explain these properties.
