I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Oulu School of Architecture, University of Oulu. In my PhD dissertation (2013) I identified five types of integrative land use planning work, each labeled to diverse markets. Since then I have been working with smart cities and municipalities to detect and develop the collaboration of strategic urban planning, and business and innovation development.

I also get to create true impact by developing collaborative structures and coordinating research in UNIC The European University of Post-Industrial Cities, as the Engaged Research Officer of the University of Oulu.
