Biography Anne Helena Kettunen

I have MSc degree from the University of Helsinki, majoring in animal breeding. After graduation I worked as a research scientist at MTT (currently Luke) with both development of models for genetic parameter
estimation and practical breeding value estimation for pigs, dairy cattle and rainbow trout. I moved to Norway in 2000 and worked in practical aquaculture for 3 years. I did my PhD at the University of Tromsø
looking at the robustness of Atlantic cod in aquaculture. I was also responsible for the breeding program for cod: tasks ranged from planning the phenotypic testing of the fish to the selection of the fish within the
breeding program. From 2012-2017 (until November) I was employed by the Nordic Genetic Resource Center as a senior scientist, where my focus was networking, project management and knowledge dissemination within farm animal genetic resources for food and agriculture. Work comprised aspects regarding both national endangered breeds and commercial breeds.
