Research Manager in DigS (Learning in Digitized Society) Research Community and Senior Lecturer at UEF Business School. I am passionate about the processes of trusting in relationships and networks; my current research interests cover various aspects of leadership, organizational processes, e.g., learning and resilience, and ecosystems with a particular interest in process ontological perspective. Before entering academia, I worked as a quality manager in a plastic industry company. My teaching expertise includes human resource management, trust, leadership and managerial work, and qualitative research methods. I am interested in applying novel learning practices based on the pedagogy of inquiry learning. I won the UEF Excellent Teaching Practitioner Award 2018 and the Teaching Award of the Association of Finnish Business Graduates 2019.
