My research interests are learning, teaching, teacher education, and teachers’ professional learning, especially in the fields of Religious and Theological Education. I hold degrees in Theology from the University of Helsinki (MTh 2001, ThD 2008) and have worked as a Secondary Teacher, University Teacher, Senior Lecturer, and Postdoctoral Researcher in Religious Education. Since moving to England in 2010, I have been a Visiting Research Fellow at King’s College London, sponsored by the Academy of Finland.

My recent post of All Saints Saxton Research Fellow in Education at Regent’s Park College was funded by All Saints Educational Trust (ASET). I was a Coordinator of the Special Interest Group (SIG 9.) Phenomenography and Variation Theory of the European Association for Research on Learning and Instruction (EARLI) in 2011-2015. I am currently a member of the UNESCO Chair network in Teacher Education for Diversity and Development. My hobbies include photography and horse riding.
