About me

Before research career I have worked in Adult Education and migration policy professions. I am near to finish my PhD by publications at the faculty of education and culture, Tampere University. My research focuses on the linkage of numeric data and policy instruments in adult education and the consequences of knowing and non-knowing in decision making. I am interested in non-discrimination and exploring how adult education is fulfilling its task to enhance societal inclusion.


I work as a grant researcher in Faculty of Education and Culture. The DIGITO-project is funded by Kone foundation and lead by Senior Research Fellow Jaana Parviainen from the Faculty of Social Sciences as the Principal Investicator of the interdisciplinary research group.
