Biography

I graduated from University of Oulu in 2004 with History of Science and Ideas as my major subject. During and after my Master's studies I worked as a planner at the Torus network of science and technology organising online learning modules and seminars. In 2005 I moved to Turku to start working at the Finland Futures Research Centre and the Finland Futures Academy where I was education assistant and manager 2005-09. Since 2009 I've been developing theory and methods of futures guidance: www.futuresguidance.fi
