I work as an associate professor of sociology. My expertise is in sociology of education and qualitative methodology, especially in ethnographic approach. My research interests are mainly in social and cultural processes of inclusions and exclusions. I have conducted research in various educational contexts from early childhood education to vocational upper secondary education and special education. I am one of the founding members of Nordforsk funded Nordic Centre of Excellence Justice through education in Nordic countries 2014 – 2018 (university of Helsinki). In addition to that, I am an adjunct professor of social research in education and a research fellow at the research group Social Studies in Urban Education (SURE) at University of Helsinki. Currently, I act as a network convener in Nordic Education Research Association (NERA) network Justice through Education.
