Tuula Nygård


Doctoral Student


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. Now I am promoting my professional skills as a doctoral student in the CogAHealth project.
