I am a determined Project Researcher and a PhD student with a demonstrated history of working in various research related projects in the University of Vaasa. I have worked in a multidisciplinary and international team of researchers at the InnoLab research platform for more than a year and a half. I have gained experience in research, stakeholder engagement, organizing events & workshops, and scientific communication after working as a research assistant, project researcher and project coordinator. I hold a Master of Administrative Sciences from the University of Vaasa, and I'm currently on a journey to become Doctor of Administrative Sciences. My dissertation deals with inclusive innovation policy at the city level and is funded by the Finnish Cultural Foundation, South Ostrobothnia Regional Fund. My other research interests include e.g. innovation, urban planning, urban safety, smart cities, public policy and disruptive technologies.
