Research interests

My work has focused on arts-based research, photography art, family photographs and forms of participatory cultures in social media. At the moment, I am conducting my research related on young peoples’ living environments and photography art. The research includes gallery exhibitions in which the latest was held in Swden i  2015, Finland and Poland in 2014, and in Iceland and Finland in 2012. I am also participating in professor Satu Miettinen’s PARTY (participatory development with the youth) project. The project aims to endorse human development and assists in reducing youth unemployment in South Africa and Namibia by using participatory and explorative service design tools.
