Oma esittely

Olen Gerontologian professori ja koulutukseltani psykologian tohtori. Olen myös sosiaaligerontologian dosentti (Helsingin yliopisto). Olen työskennellyt vuosina 2005-2021 Tanskassa, ja aloittanut Gerontologian professorin tehtävässä keväällä 2021.

Minua kiinnostavat erityisesti ikääntymisen sosiaaliset, kulttuuriset ja materiaaliset ympäristöt ja niiden merkitys yksilöille. Olen urani alkuvuosina tutkinut erityisesti iäkkäiden liikenteessä liikkumista ja sen yhteiskunnallista ja kulttuurista sääntelyä, viime vuosina tutkimukseni on käsitellyt laajemmin erilaisia sosiaaligerontologisia aiheita kuten iäkkäiden yhteisöasumista, digitaalisten palveluiden käyttöä, perhesuhteiden merkitystä vanhuusiässä sekä tulevaisuuden iäkkäiden tarpeita ja mieltymyksiä.
