Introduction

I am a sociologist with a long experience as youth researcher within multidisciplinary networks.

Previously I have worked as a teacher, researcher and administrator at the University of Helsinki, as well as executive director of a national children's aid organization.  

My special areas include sociology of childhood and youth, sociology of education, gender studies, cultural studies  and family research. I am specialized in qualitative methods, including discourse analysis and participatory methods. 

Currently I am coordinating research project 'Youth in time - qualitative longitudinal study on youth in Finland', which is a cooperative project between Youth Research Network, University of Eastern Finland and University of Helsinki. 

I have published widely both in Finnish and English.
