Biography

I have Master of Arts degree in Cultural Studies/ Comparative Religion and have studied also Futures studies. Since my Master´s thesis, which dealt cultural models of forests of the forest professionals, I have been interested in the futures of food. I have done research and worked in several projects on futures of food consumption.  My other interests concern e.g. forest and sustainability issues. Through participation in several research and development projects in Finland Futures Research Centre at the University of Turku I have experience in other areas as well. I have also been coordinating academic and international Futures Conferences of FFRC and FFA.
