Research interests

Labour market, work organization, working life and working environment. Changes in working life. Quality of working life and regulation of working life. Made research connected to practice.

Research areas

I am making research in

- Efforts to improve the psychosocial working environment in companies with ‘boundaryless' work.

- Effect of ICT in administrative work on the working environment, control and gender relations.

- The ‘environment of time' in modern working life.

- Meaning as a factor for working environment.

Research and education information

My research concerns the relations between technological and organizational development, working conditions and industrial relations. I have undertaken research in working environment and the regulation in this area, and I have contributed to the development of a conceptual understanding of ‘work and sustainability'.
In recent years my research interests have been related to the working environment in ‘boundaryless work', changing time structures in working environment, and changes in administrative work related to ICT.
