Biography

Fanny Vainionpää is a PhD candidate in Information Systems, in the INTERACT research unit. In research, she has been looking into the image of the IT field, and what are the undelrying reasons for why women do not see it as a career option. On a broader scale, Fanny is interested in social change, design, and culture in the context of IT.

After finishing her Master's degree in the University of Oulu, she started working in the ESR funded LUNO project that aimed to make IT more familiar to upper secondary school students in Oulu. Currently she is working in a follow-up project, TIKO-silta, where the aim is to develop a model for collaboration between secondary and higher education in the context of information processing science.
