About me

I am a teacher and PhD student at Tampere University School of Architecture. My research focuses on the current and coming housing related challenges posed by population ageing. The main perspective is that of renovation, covering a range of topics from room scale accessibility improvements to the design of assisted living facilities. The overarching goal of the research is to promote sustainable building stock utilization by enabling long-lasting and diverse living environments.
