I am an Academy of Finland PostDoc and Principal Investigator of Project MILESTONE at the Business School, Faculty of Social Sciences and Business Studies, University of Eastern Finland.

I have a keen interest on how entrepreneurship integrates social and environmental sustainability. It intrigues me to explore the agency of entrepreneurial actors (sustainability-oriented enterprises, social enterprises) and institutional actors (networks, communities) in doing so jointly. With that interest, my current research is about the making of a socially inclusive circular economy through entrepreneurship and the role of business models in sustainability.

Prior to this, I have studied social entrepreneurship in rural settings, particularly on the social and market logics, caring practices, and political strategy. Occasionally, I also participate in multidisciplinary understandings related to my research by collaborating with specialists from other fields such as environmental sciences, biological sciences, sociology, and policy.

I have developed and taught courses to postgraduate students on basics of entrepreneurship, social entrepreneurship, responsible and sustainable business, and strategic management. At the doctoral level, I have developed and taught courses on qualitative research methods.
