My research focuses on information practices, such as information seeking, evaluation, creation and sharing, in everyday life and in life transitions. In my doctoral research I investigated transgender people's embodied information practices during life transition. My doctoral research was funded by the Kone Foundation.

My postdoctoral research contributes to GenZ(Profi4) project at the University of Oulu. My research will focus on AI-tools as part of everyday information practices of young people.
