 Mervi chose Industrial Engineering and Management for her studies as she was interested in combining engineering with economics. She has worked in telecommunication industry for 20 years mainly in RD and supply chain interface and considers herself more a people oriented generalist than technology specialist, but is fascinated how we can improve lives of people with help of technology. Her two daughters, husband and a dog will have her time outside office hours, apart the time she is running in woods with a compass and a map.
