In addition to The Finnish Youth Research Network, I have worked as a researcher in The University of Eestern Finland. My previous research interests have been related to ethnicity, multiculturalism, gender, youth peer relations, leisure, racism, marginalisation and criminology. Currently I am studying wellbeing of young adults not in employment and education in a consortium project Inclusive Promotion of Health and Wellbeing (PROMEQ).
