My research focuses on the politics of business–society relations, and its complex implications for contemporary organizations and their stakeholders. I am a sociologically oriented organizational communication scholar, whose research agenda is theoretically positioned at the interface of organizational discourse and critical management and organization studies, with a specific focus on gender and intersectionality in organizations. In my research, I develop and deploy discursive theoretical and methodological perspectives to explore and examine a range of contemporary social issues and organizational phenomena, in order to advance knowledge of the relationships between business, government and society and, in particular, how these relationships change over time.

Before starting at Aalto University, I earned my doctorate in sociology at the University of Helsinki. My doctoral dissertation analyzed the emergence, consolidation and transformation of work-life balance as an issue of welfare governance, corporate social responsibility, and diversity management in Finland.
