About me

I have a doctoral degree in business studie and hold the title of Adjunct Professor (Digital and Sustainable Business) in LUT University, Finland.

I work at the Faculty of Management and Business as Senior Lecturer and Academic Director of the international Master's Degree Programme in Leadership for Change. 

In my research, I combine themes from, e.g., strategic management, strategic marketing, sustainability, and (new) technology business. I am to promote the development of more sustainable business solutions and practices in society.

I am one of the founding members of the Wastebusters research group. We investigate "wicked" sustainability challenges like food waste and other topics related to circular economy. We coorcinate European Union funded (2024-2027) CARE reserch project, which facilitates households in the transition to a circular economy in five European countries (Finland, Norway, Sweden, Germany, and Estonia). We are also involved in the CIRCEX project (2024-2027), which investigates human experiences related to the circular economy, the LOWINFOOD project (2020-2025), focused on food waste reduction and related innovations, and the IN2FOOD project (2021-2024) where we collaborate with Indonesian university partners to create and develop interdisciplinary course related to food waste management.
