I am an Associate Professor (Docent) in Human–Computer Interaction at the Department of Computer and Systems Sciences (DSV) at Stockholm University, Sweden, and a Docent in Social Psychology in the Faculty of Social Sciences at University of Helsinki, Finland. I am one of the three faculty members in Stockholm Technology and Interaction Research (STIR) group.

The main focus of my research is on economic encounters, peer-to-peer exchange, and networked platforms. Currently, I lead two projects: Economic Encounters for Human–Computer Interaction (2018–2021, funded by the Swedish research council) and Algorithmic Systems, Power, and Interaction (2018–2020, funded by KONE foundation). I’m also actively involved in the COST Action From Sharing to Caring: Examining Socio-Technical Aspects of the Collaborative Economy where I co-lead the working group on collaborative economy practices and communities. [For more details on my research, see Publications.]

I received my PhD in social psychology from University of Helsinki in 2014. Additionally, I hold a BSc (Eng.) from Aalto University’s interdisciplinary Information Networks degree programme.

Im also a Junior Faculty Member of ICT TNG (Information and Communication Technology - The Next Generation), and an Associate at the independent Nordic think tank Demos Helsinki.
