My research areas are urban sociology and sociology of consumption, including questions of urban public space, spaces of consumption, urban housing, as well as urban politics and urban planning. 

My Ph.D dissertation 'Narkissos kaupungissa. Tutkimus kuluttaja-kaupunkilaisesta ja julkisesta tilasta.' [Narcissus in the City: a study of a consumer-urbanite and urban public space.] was published in April 2005 (in Finnish). See English summary and an interview.

Currently I am joining in a project called Spiritualising space - Spice, with University of Arts and Design and funded by Tekes.

Publications in English.
