Personal profile

Curriculum vitae

During the past 12 years I have held several positions which allowed me to acquire expertise while also entertaining my wide scope of interest in the field of cultural heritage, and in 2017 I started my PhD research, as an external PhD candidate, at the University of Helsinki. The preliminary title of my research is ‘Heritage Management Education (HME) – Towards Innovative Teaching Methods Reflecting Contemporary Aspects and Needs of Heritage and its Management Requirements’.

At the moment I work as freelancer (AW Heritage Consultancy), I’m on the executive committee for ICOMOS-ICAHM and I’m the executive director for the non-profit Friends of ICAHM.
