Biography

I'm a futurist and an ethnologist with my academic background in University of Turku. I have been working also at Åbo Akademi University and University of Helsinki. I'm Adjunct Professor in Cultural Heritage Studies, especially in applied cultural studies at University of Turku. In addition I have a competence-based qualification in weaving.

Teaching

My teaching topics are futures studies in Master's Programme in Futures Studies and in Finnish Master's Programmes at Turku School of Economics as well as sustainable development (area of responsibility cultural sustainability) in the Study Programme in Sustainable Development (KEKO, minor).

Research

My main research topics lie under the umbrella concept of cultural sustainability. Methodologically I'm concentrating in participatory, qualitative methods in futures studies and in ethnography. One main theme in my research is the interface of cultural and ecological sustainability. Another main theme is cultural heritage and heritage futures as instruments in building future in a glocal and global process of traditions.
