About the author

Author in a nutshell

I am an anthropologist by education and I care about workplace inclusiveness in the changing world of work. I want everyone to find a job that suits them, regardless of the background or possible differences in learning abilities.

Doctoral researcher

I am currently a doctoral researcher focusing on inclusive workplace from the perspective of disabled employees, with a focus on sustainable human resource management (HRM). I will be conducting ethnographic fieldwork as part of my doctoral research.

I am a member of Organizational Ethics, Leadership and HRM (ETHOS) research group where we focus on investigating factors that support and, on the other hand, restrict the opportunities of diverse people and groups in organizational context, to advance practices of responsible business.

I am also an endorser of the Principles of Responsible Research in Business and Management (RRBM). Future vision of RRMB strives for a wide use of business and management research in practice by business and non-business organizations, to improve the lives of people in our societies.
