Why did we reach out to him?
Pauli Kallio is our PI and official advisor. He has worked with cyanobacteria for a long time and understands the way the scientific community operates. Besides him being our PI we reached out to understand about cyanobacteria, circular economy and the challenges the scientific community has faced.
What did we learn from this?
He has given us professional view in our ideas when needed and helped us create a reasonable scientific project. We have had many meetings with him in which we have discussed our concerns about the project. We of course have given him updates about our project progress in general too.
What kind of impact did this have to our project?
He helped us understand that our project needs to be well-thought as a whole and taught us about the circular economy concept. With his help we could plan our project in a responsible way. In addition he has always been there to support us when things have felt hard and when we did not know how to proceed.
