Biography

I work as Postdoctoral researcher at LUT University in Finland. I have finalized my doctoral studies in Industrial engineering and management in June 2018, focusing on the managerial challenges in value creation for sustainability-oriented innovations.

My special expertise areas include sustainability-oriented innovations, circular economy business, platform ecosystems, sustainable value creation, sharing economy, and innovation management. I have worked as a project manager in research projects such as ”From data to wisdom: approaches enabling circular economy” and "Strategic Business models and governance for sustainable solutions".

I have been publishing e.g. in Journal of Cleaner Production, Industrial Marketing Management, Technology Analysis and Strategic Management, International Journal of Innovation and Sustainable Development and International Journal of Innovations and Technology Management. For example my recent research articles include Themes of "Advancing circular business", ”Darker side of sustainability” and ”Platform design framework”.

Besides conducting research in a close collaboration with several national and international companies and research organizations, I am highly involved with innovation and strategic management education. I am especially interested of adult pedagogy and currently finalizing my Master studies in this field. In LUT I have teaching experience in sustainability-oriented innovations, industrial and innovation management and strategic consulting. I work also as a supervisor for Master and Bachelor level Theses.
