TARU PELTOLA

Associate professor

social sustainability

My research focuses on novel interactive approaches in environmental policy and sustainability transformations. I experiment with collaborative methods in contentious environmental issues and assess the potential of citizen science in strengthening public engagement in evidence-informed decision making. In addition to environmental policy studies I am inspired by science and technology studies. My research interests include the role of emotions in environmental governance and human relations to materealities and non-humans. Current research topics include wolves, food and waste.
