Personal profile

Artistic and research interests

In my  position, as Senior Specialist for Art and Creative Practices, I support Aalto University’s strategic objective of renewing society by art, creativity and design. We at Aalto believe that art, design and creativity radically question and challenge our society and culture. Our aim is to increase the visibility and impact of art, design and transdisciplinary creativity. These aims are approached through diverse university-wide activities such as Sharing and co-creating transdisciplinary artworks and University-Wide Art Studies, and by developing mechanisms to integrate creative practices and design thinking with technology and business throughout Aalto University.

Prior to my current position I was a full-time scholar for over ten years funded by the Academy of Finland. My research interests include higher arts education, arts and creativity in academia, university pedagogy as well as professional and academic development. My special interest is in collaborative research endeavors and in “new” modes of (post) qualitative research. I have published in several refereed journals and edited volumes as well as presented my research work in various academic networks.
