Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

My focus of research is in sociology of education, gender studies in education and ethnographic methodologies. I have conducted research on educational policies, curriculum and school textbooks, ethnographic studies in secondary schools and longitudinal life history research on young people's transitions into adulthood. In the 2000s I have been responsible leader in the project Gender Awareness in Teacher Education (Ministry of Education 2008-2010) and in several projects of the Academy of Finland, the latest of which Citizenship, Agency and Difference in Upper Secondary Education – with Special Focus on Vocational Institutions (2010-2013). Currently I am involved in a Nordic Centre of Excellence Justice throuhg Education in the Nordic Countries (JustEd 2014-2018).
