General description

I am a Senior Researcher at the Finnish Institute for Educational Research, University of Jyväskylä, specializing in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) education.

I am coordinating several projects at the Innovative Learning Environments Research Team. The topics of my projects cover Artificial Intelligence, makerspaces, 3D printing, skills and competence development through STEAM, Sustainability, and Planetary Well-being.

My expertise lies in the research and participatory design of interdisciplinary learning environments that foster creativity, collaboration, and innovative thinking. Through my work, I aim to bridge the gap between scientific inquiry and artistic exploration, promoting holistic and engaging educational experiences.

Research interests

Research Interests:
My research focuses on integrating STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) to foster innovative, inquiry-based learning environments. I explore the connections between mathematics and art, promote inquiry-based and cooperative learning, and bridge physical and digital realms to enhance educational experiences. I advocate for phenomenon-based learning and interdisciplinary management in education to create holistic and collaborative teaching cultures.

My publications span journal articles, edited volumes, and educational resources. Notable works include contributions to journals like The Notices of the American Mathematical Society and editing the anthology Aesthetics of Interdisciplinarity: Art and Mathematics and contributing to the „Playful Learning In Early Childhood Education in Finland”. I have also developed math-art-education handbooks to support educators in integrating STEAM principles.
