Areas of expertise
I coordinate a course called TEVY Yrityselämään! - Liiketoiminta ja projektityöskentely (5+1 cr), which is mandatory for all about 250 first year students in the Turku School of Economics. I also work as a course assistant in the course Futures research and strategic foresight (4 cr) which is mandatory for all the students in new Master's degree programmes in the Turku School fo Economics and was launched in fall 2018.
I have Master of Arts degree in European
Ethology and have studied also e.g. Futures studies. Since my pro gradu
thesis, which dealt with combine harvester as an example of
modernization of agriculture, I have an interest in rural issues. I have
done research on female entrepreneurship on farms and other
interests concern e.g. new livelihoods in rural areas, female
entrepreneurship, futures images of young people and sustainbility in
the shipbuilding industry. Through participation in several research and development projects in Finland Futures Research Centre I have experience in other areas as well.
