I have been working at the Finnish Youth Research Society since 2021 in different projects including topics of wellbeing, participation, and services for youth. At the moment, I am working in the research consortium Out of Despair – providing solutions to break the pathways leading to violent, suicidal and drug-induced deaths of young people. I am exploring how anonymous chat services can support young people with suicidal ideation and doing ethnography in a support point for homeless youth with substance use. I am a doctoral student at the University of Jyväskylä, department of Social Sciences and Philosophy in the field of Cultural Policy.
