Personal profile

Expertise area

My research topics relate to sustainability assessment, sustainability management and circular economy. I  work in interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary projects aiming to integrate the results from environmental, economic, social and technical studies. Previous and current research projects cover a broad range of topics related to forest industry, process industry, ICT and recycling. I have a master's degree in Economics and Business Administration, and studies in environmental policy and economic sociology. I'm currently finalising my PhD in Management and Organization studies at Turku School of Economics, University of Turku. 

Research interests

Special areas of interest include environmental and social sustainability, life cycle assessment, life cycle thinking and sustainability communication. I'm especially interested in how sustainability information can be used to support decision-making in different contexts.
