My current research focuses on the role of social norms and of policy instruments in supporting the transition towards sustainable food systems and healthier and less environmentally damaging diets. The cost and benefits of increasing the production and consumption of legumes and, more generally, the role of legumes as a key element of sustainable food systems and diets is also a key focus of my research. I have also a strong interest in the pedagogy of teaching economics and a wide experience with flipped teaching. Another research area I am working on is the economics of environmental crime. My expertise is in behavioral economics, experimental economics, environmental economics, cost-benefit analysis and selected statistical methods. I am open to collaborate in research and educational projects.
I work as a university lecturer in economics at the University of Helsinki, Department of Economics and Management, Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry. I am a member of the Helsinki Institute of Sustainability Science (HELSUS) , Helsinki Graduate School of Economics‘s Faculty, and Teachers’ Academy at the University of Helsinki and affiliated of the Research group in Food Economics and Business Managment For Sustainable Food Systems and Green Alliance
I’m a co-leader in one of the packages of the STN-research project Legumes for Sustainable Food System and Healthy Life, Leg4Life , which focuses on the environmental, health and economic impacts of the production and consumption of legumes in Finland.
