Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

Anna Simola is doctoral candidate and affiliated researcher at the Centre of Excellence for Research on Ageing and Care (RG 3 Migration, Care and Ageing, #312310) at the University of Helsinki. Currently she is also a visiting researcher at the Cosmopolis Center for Urban Research at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel in Belgium. Her PhD project 'Precarious work and precarious citizenship: risks and uncertainty during migration of young highly educated EU citizens in the EU labour markets' examines mobility of young university-educated EU citizens in the dual context of the spread of precarious employment and the changing social and legal norms regulating free movement in the EU.

Simola completed her MSSc in 2008 in Sociology from the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Tampere. She also holds a postgraduate master in European Studies from the Catholic University of Leuven (Belgium). Until the late 2010 she worked at the University of Tampere as a project researcher on issues related to migration, labour migration and economic press at the Research Centre for Journalism, Media and Communication.
