Biography

I started my professional career in elementary school as a class teacher. My PhD (Education) was about youth acting against norms and especially juvenile firesetting. After my PhD I have been working at the Injury Prevention Unit in the National Institute for Health and Welfare, Rescue College of Finland, and in the University of Tampere.

At the moment I am involved with the KIDISAFE program at the Department of Teacher Education Rauma. This program aims at developing a safety and security culture for early childhood education in Pikkunorssi kindergarten.
