I am a doctoral researcher in INTERACT Research Unit. For two years I was working as project coordinator in the LUNO project, where we tried to make IT more familiar to high school students. During the project I have worked on my PhD thesis, using qualitative research methods to inquire why girls are still not entering the IT field, and what influences their choice. Currently I am working in the follow up project, TIKO-silta, where we are finding concrete ways secondary education and higher education can co-operate.
In addition to research and project work, I have assisted in the following courses: UI design, Research and Development Project and Seminar, Software Business Basics. I have also been developing our faculty's introductory open university course.
