Research could serve decision making better, I believe. This is why I work in e2 for democracy and a sustainable society: it is possible to reduce inequality and improve the state of the environment. My pamphlet Pilaatko eliitti Suomen? was published in early 2017. My working life comprises research, training and expert assignments for Parliament and others. I am also well acquainted with political processes and participation.

Food security and food systems from global to local are on my daily agenda. My earlier assignments in developing countries and FAO draw my attention particularly to climate change and environmental issues. I believe that the world will be saved plate by plate.

My background is in electoral research and currently I specialize in quantitative research on values, attitudes and political participation. I have a PhD degree from Åbo Academy in Political Science and my thesis focused on party-voter ties in the scope of societal cleavages in Finland in the 2000s. My interest and source of inspiration are societal phenomena and their plurality.
