I am Professor of Sustainable Design at the Department of Design, Aalto University. I'm a sustainability scientist and a design researcher, developing a teaching and research portfolio for imagining sustainable, equitable and resilient future systems through various approaches in design research and developing interventions to achieve these proposals. 

My work is concerned with socio-technical and socio-ecological systems with a particular focus on production-consumption systems and cities. I am a global pioneer in the emerging area of design for sustainability transitions, developiong theories and methods/tools for design practice dealing with sustainability transitions.
