Information om forskning och undervisning

As from 1.9.2022, I am working as an Academy Research Fellow at the University of Eastern Finland. I am a supervisor within the Doctoral Programme in Cognition, Learning, Instruction and Communication (CLIC) at the University of Helsinki.

I am a university lecturer in educational sciences and my teaching is mostly related to learning in different contexts, educational psychology, and quantitative research methods. My research links the study of motivation with well-being and explores both among children and young people, especially during educational transitions. Specifically, I investigate individual differences in and developmental trajectories of achievement motivation (e.g., achievement goal orientations, task values) and their associations with various educational and emotional outcomes (e.g., academic achievement, educational aspirations, burnout, engagement, perfectionism).
