Kristian Alaviuhkola, Managing Director

He is the Managing Director at Sciar Company. He is interested in reducing human factors from the quality of operational work. He has experience in aviation, obtained as an airline pilot and instructor (Human factors, Emergency & Safety, Dangerous Goods ) for nearly 20 years before moving over to molecular bioscience. During this time, he has noticed a big difference in the quality of manual work in different industries compared to aviation. His goal is to help companies and organizations use aviation methods to improve the quality of work and documentation and thus improve the reproducibility of work and reduce the cost of quality.
