My research focuses on information practices, such as information seeking, evaluation, creation, and sharing, in everyday life and in life transitions. My postdoctoral research is part of the project Artificial intelligence mediating the everyday information practices of young people (AIM), funded by Kone Foundation. The project focuses on AI-tools as part of everyday information practices of young people and uses co-research methods to explore how AI shapes young peoples' information environments, practices, agency, and identities.

In my doctoral thesis research I investigated transgender people's embodied information practices during life transition. My doctoral research was funded by the Kone Foundation.
