Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I am a PhD student in Sociology in the Doctoral Programme in Social Sciences at the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Helsinki. I am doing my doctoral research on migrant care and domestic work in Finland.

Currently an increasing amount of families and individuals are employing a private care and domestic worker or an au pair for work in their households. At the same time it is becoming more common that this work is done by a person with migrant background. My doctoral research examines the outsourcing of care and domestic work to migrant workers in connection to ongoing processes such as the gendered division of labour, women’s participation in the labour market, the intensification of work and privatisation of care.

The empirical research material consists of qualitative semi-structured thematic interviews conducted with migrant care and/or domestic workers that are working in Finland, and with employers, both private individuals and companies, of migrant care and/or domestic workers.

My supervisors are Lena Näre, Associate Professor at the Department of Social Research at the University of Helsinki, Johanna Kantola, Professor in Gender Studies at the University of Tampere and Marjut Jyrkinen, Associate Professor at the Department of Gender, Culture and Society at the University of Helsinki.

My PhD research is financed by The Doctoral Programme in Social Sciences and The Doctoral Programme in Gender, Culture and Society.
