My research interests relate to entrepreneurship as gendered and situated work. Especially, I study women's enterprising practices and interpretations, which are taking shape intertwined with gender and rural place. At the moment I am working with:

1. Follow-up of the rural women entrepreneurs interviewed for my PhD. Currently I am analyzing new interviews in which they tell about their situations today, many years after the first interviews. What elements have led them to their current situations and how are they interpreting their life course, work and welfare now? What kind of identity are they telling and under which conditions?

2. Planning of the research on rural tourism and travel, commodification of the countryside and the investing of the entrepreneur's body and personality in this tourist work. Through what kind of emotional and aesthetic work the visitors' unique experience is produced? Currently I am looking for suitable firms where to conduct ethnography and interviews.
