Jonna Kuusisto invited to present her work at European Paper Week

Jonna Kuusisto has been selected as one of three young researchers to present her work.

Aalto University’s doctoral candidate Jonna Kuusisto, M.Sc. (Tech), from the Department of Forest Products Technology, has been selected as one of three young researchers to present her work at the annual meeting of the Confederation of European Paper Industries (CEPI), which is to be held during European Paper Week in November. The final choice of presenters was made from a pool of twelve young researchers, who had been selected to Early Stage Researchers Workshop based on applications. The workshop, to be organised during the European Paper Week, sought young researchers “to report on R&D activities be it on innovative products, improved technologies, advanced analytics or any other subject aiming at strengthening the position and the future role of the European paper industry”.

Jonna Kuusisto's doctoral research focuses on the development of self-bonding inorganic-organic microcomposites for papermaking. Target is to integrate starch and calcium carbonate into useful hybrid pigments and use the low cost material to replace fiber in various paper and board applications. The composite could thus improve the cost structure of paper and give unique properties, such as excellent strength and sheet bonding. Kuusisto is making her PhD in Professor Thad Maloney’s research group.

European Paper Week is held in Brussels, 25 to 27 November 2014. The Early Stage Researchers Workshop is organised by CEPI and EFPRO (The Association of European Fibre and Paper Research Organisation). Read more at http://www.cepi.org/EPW.
