Research interests

I serve as a senior lecturer in leadership psychology at University of Lapland, Finland. My professional background derives from HRM and HRD functions at private and public sector. Especially, as a practitioner, I have specialized in work-counselling (supervision) and process consultancy. In my research work, I approach professional organisations as dynamic and complex systems. From this point of view, a fascinating part of the research role lies in understanding multi-layered relations, as they emerge during interaction processes. The key research questions revolve around supportive leadership role, co-creative space, and interaction dynamics. Methodologically, I mainly approach these issues from a discursive psychology perspective, which offers versatile tools to complexity.
