I am a sociology professor at the University of Turku, Finland. My research interests are in intergenerational socioeconomic attainment and family demography, plus everything else empirically observable you can link with equality of opportunity.

I am the founder and the director of INVEST Research Flagship Center (“Inequalities, Interventions and a New Welfare State”), a joint effort of Uni Turku and Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare. Additionally, I am the coordination PI of the MapIneq project (Horizon Europe).
