PhD (Dr. phil., Sociology), Master of Social Work



I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Jyväskylä, Kokkola University Consortium Chydenius, since 2015. I finished my PhD on social security and human rights in Finland and Germany at the University of Siegen, Germany, in 2014. I am also holding a master´s degree in social work from the Alice Salomon University Berlin on social work as a human rights profession. Additionally, I have 10 years of practical experience as a social worker in the fields of family care, child protection and youth work.

Research and teaching:

My research focuses on ecosocial work, sustainability and unemployment policies as well as on social work ethics and social economy. I have long-standing experience in cross-national, comparative research.

My main fields of teaching are human rights and social work, ethics, unemployment policies and poverty, ecosocial work and sustainability as well as qualitative research methods. Apart from teaching at the JYU, I am a guest lecturer at the ASH Berlin, the University of Hamburg and the University of Gävle, Sweden.
