Biography

I work as a university lecturer in social policy. I am also the principal investigator of research project on COVID-19 pandemic and everyday life in families with children. I have been working in social policy unit many years in different teaching positions and as a doctoral candidate in LabourNet doctoral school. I finished my PhD in 2014. In my PhD-thesis “Opportunities, constraints and constrained opportunities. A study on mothers’ working time patterns in 22 European countries” I examined mothers’ working time patterns in 22 European countries.

Teaching

I teach currently courses that are part of master's degree in social policy. Courses that I teach include employment and family policy, quantitative research methods and master thesis.

Research

My research interests are linked to labour market and family research. I am interested in mothers' employment and working times as well as combining work and family life. I have also studied attitudes towards work, family and gender roles. Currently I'm working on research concerning COVID-19 pandemic and families with children, especially from the perspective of combining work and family life. Methodologically my research falls into the tradition of comparative cross-national research and quantitative research.
