Recent Work Experience

Research Manager / TAK Border Research
Nov 2012 - Current

TAK Border Research began in 1997. Currently, with 20.000 interviews annually, it is the largest travel research in Finland. Among many other things, the number of foreign travelers and their consumption in Finland, is calculated from this research. I have been involved with TAK Border Research as a researcher since 2008, and managing it since 2012.


Researcher / Tourism Income and Employment
2017

By utilizing a variety of statistics and our own research data, we calculate tourism income and number of jobs created by tourism, for municipalities and provinces in Finland. All results for different areas are comparable. In 2017, we reported these numbers for 20 different areas in Finland, including Helsinki, Espoo and Vantaa. I participated in the calculation of the results and planning of the research.
