Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I work as a university lecturer in Social Psychology at the Open University of Helsinki University. My research interests include ethnic relations and immigrant integration. My PhD thesis examined intergroup contact and prejudice among adolescents, and since then, I have been working on intergroup relations between Finnish majority and the Russian-speaking minority living in Finland. The most recent projects I have been involved with include: Reciprocal glocal neighborhoods – Russian neighbors in Finland, Estonia and Norway; INPRES/LADA project on the long-term adaptation of ethnic remigrants from Russia to Finland; and MIRIPS-FI project on mutual intergroup relations between majority Finns and Russian-speaking immigrants (projects funded by the Kone Foundation and the Academy of Finland, led by prof. Jasinskaja-Lahti).  As part of my research activities, I also frequently serve as a reviewer for international peer-reviewed journals.

As regards teaching, I teach Bachelor-level courses in Social Psychology at the Open University, and I have also been supervising and evaluating Bachelor’s and Master’s theses for the unit of Social Psychology. I also actively take part in the PhD seminar of our ESSO research group as a commentator. Currently, I am supervising three PhD students whose research is related to collaborative research projects based at the unit of Social Psychology, led by professors Inga Jasinskaja-Lahti and Karmela Liebkind.

Research interests
