Current Work

I work as a researcher related to  urban and peri-urban socioecological problems, with a specific focus on supporting and developing citizen science and knowledge co-production methods for more impactful science. On-going projects include development of planning tools for identifying factors of wellbeing in the built environment and the role of place-based knowledge in environmental conflicts. Currently, I am also finalizing my PhD studies on science policy interactions at the University of Helsinki
