My ambition is in developing art and design education, participatory learning environments, facilitating student-oriented practices, and promoting creativity in learning with digital technologies. Employing design methods in learning and educational development are in the essence of my work.

As the work life is changing, there is a great need for professionals with high ethics, and creative and critical mindset, who can challenge the existing structures, create new ones, and initiate a positive change.

Currently, I am working at Aalto University as a specialist for digital learning environments in higher education and finalising my doctoral research on principles for open design pedagogy in the learning environments research group.
