Research

My main research interests are related to sociology of education, youth studies, life course research, and international comparative education. In my most recent research, including my doctoral dissertation, I have focused on youth trajectories, educational and societal segregation, and the relations of social change and social reproduction. I am currently  actively participating in two research projects: International Study of City Youth (ISCY; iscy.org) and Education Systems, Learning and Social Change (EduSyS; sites.utu.fi/edusys). ISCY is a comparative, longitudinal study focusing on understanding how education systems prepare young people to life beyond school and how young people’s school experiences and achievements influence their careers and life more broadly. EduSys is a longtudinal mixed methods study analysing young people's educational and occupational pathways, particularly from the viewpoint of their skills development and choices made in different transition points in their social contexts.
