Who am I?

I am a researcher and teacher based in Oulu Finland with over 30 years of professional experience.

I have a B.A. and M.A. in Economics from Churchill College, Cambridge University and Ph.D in Educational Sciences from Oulu University.

I have taught courses at Oulu University to in-service teachers on sustainability and development theory and practice as well as educational equity issues. In addition I have taught International Baccalaureate Economics and Theory of Knowledge at high schools in UK, Kenya, Japan and Finland.

I have also directed international projects on education and sustainability in Europe and Asia – most recently Transformative Education for Gross National Happiness action research in Bhutan.

My current research interests in education are transformative action research and  transformative pedagogy to promote sustainability.
