Biography

I have done research and development work since graduating from the University of Jyvaskyla (Social and Public Policy) in 1999. My PhD thesis (in Social and Public Policy, 2009) is entitled ”Working Time and Family Time”.  Since 2000 I have participated to several research projects on working life studies at the Department of Social Sciences and Philosophy. My research topics have included e.g. everyday life of families, working time, time famine, use of time, work and family/life interaction, nonstandard work, rehabilitative work experience, social services, and 24/7 -economy. Besides University of Jyväskylä, I have worked in the International Labour Organization (ILO) in Geneva, the National Institute for Health and Welfare, and JAMK University of Applied Sciences.

I am the chair of the scientific board of the Finnish language scientific journal Working life research (www.tyoelamantutkimus.fi) 2017-2019, I was the editor of the journal in 2014-2016. I am also the secretary of the Executive Board of the European Society on Family Relations (www.esfr.com).

Ongoing and previous projects

My Academy of Finland Research Fellow project (1st September 2015 to 31st August 2020) is entitled "FamilyTies: Time is Money? Schedules, time negotiations, time coordination and ICT in family (in Finnish: Aika on rahaa? Perheen rytmit, aikaneuvottelut, koordinointi ja teknologia)". Project number: 287678 / Academy of Finland.

I am also part of the research team of the Academy of Finland funded research project (2014-2018) Flexlife - Temporal flexibility of work and its effect on later work and family life, which is a research project run in collaboration with University of Tampere (professor Jouko Nätti is the director). Previously I worked in a Academy of Finland funded project directed by professor Anna Rönkä entitled Families 24/7- Children’s socio-emotional wellbeing and daily family life in a 24-h economy.

Areas of Interest

 - everdaylife, time and time use, working time and conditions, work-family/life interaction, family life,  ICT, social services and public sector work.

Research Areas

 - family research, working time, time use, work-family interaction, ICT and family life, public sector work

The Relevance and Benefits of my Research

My research brings new information on changing conditions of work and wellbeing. Furthermore, it brings new knowledge on the daily life of families, and how technology, especially social media, is changing it. The information on the changes of work, wellbeing and family life is important for various actors, such as politicians, work places, practitioners and researchers in Finland and internationally
