Project researcher in the LEADIS team, responsible research of digital workplaces and service providers. The focus area of my doctoral research work is remote work, and more specifically Work-Life-Balance in remote work. I am also a responsible project manager at VME Interaction Design Environment located in the multi-domain laboratory Technobotnia, Vaasa. The aim of the lab is to provide a low-treshold environment for students and companies to develop future user interfaces (incl. eye tracking, AR/VR technology).

I have a long backgound in various leadership roles, having managed remote and hybrid teams and projects in international context. My practical experience incudes Profit & Loss responsibility, strategy deployment, people leadership, change management and re-organization. Apart from leadership work I have experience in management consulting & process development and automation (Robotic Process Automation & Machine learning). Most of my roles have included responsibilities in sales and in finance.
Besides my studies I also do training & consulting assignments. 
I use Finnish, Swedish and English both at work and at home.

I am one kind of project leader at home, too since I am a mother of 5 young children, of which the smallest ones are twins. Whenever I find the time, I like to go for a long run, play the piano, go horde-back riding or simply read a great book.
