Areas of expertise
I work as University Teacher in Accounting and Finance at Turku School of Economics, Pori Unit. Before this appointment I was University Lecturer in Accounting at Oulu Business School, University of Oulu. I also obtained my Master's and Doctoral degrees at the University of Oulu. At Oulu Business School I gained experience in the administration of education as I was the director of the Master’s Programs of Oulu Business School while working there.
My strongest teaching experience is in Management Control systems and supervising Bachelor's and Master's Theses. At the Pori unit of Turku School of Economics I supervise those Theses. I am also responsible for the courses Kustannuslaskennan perusteet and Sijoitustoiminta. I also teach on courses Integroiva projektityö and Organisaation strateginen ohjaus.
My research interests cover different perspectives on management control systems such as compensation systems for employees and controls in inter-organizational relationships, such as shared service centers and outsourced accounting. I am also interested in pedagogical issues, and a research project of mine covers learning in case-based accounting assignments.
