Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I work as a university lecturer in social psychology. My research mostly focuses on ethnic relations and immigrant integration, but recently, I have also studied intergroup relations between groups with different worldviews. My PhD thesis examined intergroup contact and prejudice among adolescents, and since then, I have specialized in intergroup relations between the Finnish national majority and the Russian-speaking minority, as well as inter-minority relations in Finland. As regards my teaching, I teach open university courses at Bachelor level, and work as a PhD supervisor and a senior member of the PhD seminar of our ESSO research group.

Research interests
