Personal profile

Research interests

As an Information Specialist I work mainly with research data management, open publishing, and open science. My background is in historical research as well as archives and museums.

My research interests include e.g. the life cycle of research data, archival science, and relationships between archives, museums, and historical research. Archival science also has a significant role in my research concerning the history of everyday life, gender history, and family history.

In 2022–2025 I am a member in the research project Förfalskarna – Allmogens litterarisering och kunskap om det svenska språket i brottslig kontext i Finland under 1800-talets första hälft (UTU) where my study concerns forgeries as material culture.

My doctoral dissertation combined history and archival science. The focus was on the publication of medieval sources in Finland from the 18th century to the 21st century.

Teaching interests

My teaching in the University of Lapland has to do with research data management, scientific publishing and open science. I also teach the use of archival sources in Cultural History studies.

​In addition, I have taught medieval history and archival science. I used to work as a University Teacher in the Master's Degree Pathway in Records and Archives Management in the University of Turku.
