I am an organizational sociologist whose research bridges the fields of organization studies and science, technology, and society (STS). I study institutions, knowledge production, work, and careers in academia. My research agenda delves into the organization and management of interdisciplinary research, collaboration at disciplinary and professional boundaries, academic entrepreneurship, and, most recently, ethical regulation in science. I publish my research in leading academic journals at the intersection of organization studies and STS such as Management Learning, Science, Technology, & Human Values, Science as Culture, and Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy.
I have a B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Sociology from the University of Helsinki and a Ph.D. in Organization Studies from Stanford University. I am a docent at the Faculty of Social Sciences at University of Helsinki and an affiliate in the Research Center for Work, Technology, and Organization at EMLYON Business School. I currently work as a Professor of Science, Technology, and Organization at the Faculty of Management and Business at Tampere University. I am the principal investigator of The Emergence of Health and Life Science Innovations (HeLSI) project and a new research project titled Competing Imaginaries of Ethical Science (IMAGES) which will begin in 2023.
