As a doctoral researcher, my research focus is on collaboration and organizing, and I am drawn to research that aims to bring individual narrative knowing and dialogic methods to the core of the learning and development of sustainable systems and digital solutions. My methodological interests reside in qualitative process research. I hold a master's degree in knowledge management.

I am an alternate board member of Systems Change Finland and a steering group member of the Knowledge Management Development Program Tieto-osaava, funded (4M€) by the Ministry of Culture and Education and led by Omnia, the Joint Authority of Education in the Espoo Region. Editor-in-Chief of Finnish knowledge management journal Tietoasiantuntija in 2018–2023 and a decade of experience as a freelance journalist. I have over 20 years of work experience in a private business and about 7 years in the third sector, in the areas of adult education and NGOs.
