Some older projects
I used to work at a research project called Adolescent Health and Lifestyle
Survey which has moved to university of Tampere (Text in Finnish: Nuorten
terveystapatutkimus). I developed a software package to collect data
from survey forms, which utilized bar codes. More than 150 000 questionnaire
forms have been coded with the software.
After that I have worked on a couple of other projects, for example
a clinical study called "supplementary feeding in maternity hospitals
and cow's milk allergy". The study comprises 6209 infants and was carried
out in three maternity hospitals in the Helsinki region and in the Hospital
for Children and Adolescents, University of Helsinki.
