Research idea

My core idea for research is to analyse dynamics in politics, the ways in which political action is always tied to longer term socio-historical developments, constrained or enabled through institutional rearrangements, and actors are both entangled in and empowered by the dynamics that develop in these conditions. Theoretically I am interested in the questions of power, contingency, and complexity.

Current work

I am currently leading the project Transnational Dynamics in Quality Assurance and Evaluation Politics of Basic Education in Brazil, China and Russia (2014–2017) in which we aim to understand how local learning environments are shaped by transnational policies and practices, and analyse the multifaceted constitutive effects of quality assurance and evaluation. The project is a consortium between Education Departments at the universities of Tampere (Prof. Tuomas Takala) and Turku (Prof. Risto Rinne).

At the School of Education, University of Tampere, I teach courses on politics and governance of education for graduate and postgraduate students.

My other academic tasks include leading the Team 1 at the Nordic Centre of Excellence Justice through Education (JustEd) and supervision of doctoral dissertations and master's thesis.
