Stories of research, nutrition, and nature


My name is Kirsikka Kaipainen. If you find it difficult to pronounce, I know how you feel – it was hard for me for the first twelve years of my life.

I work at VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, trying to figure out how we can use technology to support healthy habits and mental well-being. The main purpose of this blog has been to document my adventures and thoughts during year 2012 as a Visiting Fellow at Cornell University’s Food & Brand Lab in Ithaca, NY. Now that I’m back in Finland, it has mostly served as a reflection channel.
