Meet our teachers!
Ivo Leito: “Metrology lies in the core of all correct measurements, both physical and chemical. Metrological approach is increasingly required from laboratories by international standards and conventions.”
Courses: Metrology in Chemistry, Master’s seminar, practical chemical analysis
Lectures online: If you wish to get an idea what Ivo’s teaching is like, please visit the online course Estimation of Measurement Uncertainty in Chemical Analysis
Other activities: Programme director (contact)
Koit Herodes: “Within the past 10 years the whole area of trace contaminant (pesticides, drug residues, toxicants, etc) detection has been
revolutionized by the development of new measurement instrumentation. I am
glad that we have been able to keep pace with these developments.”
Courses: Practical Chemical Analysis
Mart Noorma: Initiator and scientific mentor of the ESTCube project, vice dean of studies of UT Faculty of Science and Technology.
Courses: Quality Management
Anneli Kruve: “It’s a beautiful world!”
Courses: Master’s seminar, Practical chemical analysis
Ivari Kaljurand: “Understanding how do the modern analytical instrumentation works will help to take out best from these.”
Courses: Practical Works in Chemical Analysis and Metrology
Lauri Jalukse: “It is fascinating, how versatile and elegant is the world of electrochemical measurements!”.
Courses: Metrology in Chemistry
Picture: Lauri Jalukse doing validation of coulonometric Karl Fischer titrator. This is a technique for measuring water content in different samples, such as oils, pharmaceuticals, etc.
Siiri Velling: “Introduction along with thorough examination of the diverse world of
chemical and ecotoxicologycal methods of analysis of complex and
heterogeneous environmental samples.”
Courses: Measurements and Environment
- Hans Korge: “Measure thrice before you drink (originaalis: cut) once!”.
Courses: Measurement Data Processing
- Indrek Tulp: “Multivariate data analysis in chemometrics requires a wide-ranging explanation!”.
Martin Vilbaste: “Unreliable measurements and calibrations are just a waste of resources. Physical measurements and calibrations are probably the simplest among other kinds of measurements on metrologists’ point of view. In such a sense these are very educative.”.
Courses: Practical Works on Physical Measurement and Calibration
Erko Jakobson: “Installation of radiometer mast in Ny-Ålesund, Spitsbergen, world’s northernmost (78°55′N) functional public settlement. Measurements
without correct measurement data processing would be just waste of time”
Courses: Measurement data processing
Riho Vendt: “We need reliable measurement results, don’t we? Try, and see the impact of metrology.”
Courses: Fundamentals of Metrology
Alan Tkaczyk: “Accurate measurements are essential to guarantee safety at nuclear facilities.”
Courses: Nuclear Engineering, Nuclear Reactor Physics
