I am a researcher at the Faculty of Educational Sciences. My scholarly interests consist of inclusive education for individuals with special needs in different educational stages, educational and employment transitions and sense of belonging in different life stages (e.g., for students with special needs). My research has a particular focus on people with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Currently, I am conducting research in an EU-funded project about improving employability of higher education students with autism in Europe. I am the project manager and principal investigator in Finland, as well as leading the qualitative data collection in the other participating countries.
