Tuula Nygård

In the autumn 2016, I started to work as a project researcher in the project Cognitive authorities in everyday health information environments of young people (CogAHealth), funded by the Academy of Finland. Before that, watchmaking was my field whereas women's voluntary military service and peacekeeping in the Middle East were my serious interests. Besides my job, I studied a Master's Degree in Education 2014. I am currently developing my professional skills as a doctoral student. In my dissertation, I examine the challenges of promoting students’ information seeking and evaluation from the perspective of multiliteracy in health education.
