I'm a postdoc researcher at the Research Unit for the Sociology of Education (RUSE) at the University of Turku. My research interests include altmetrics, webometrics, bibliometrics, social network analysis, and to study various other phenomena on the web in general and in social media in particular, mainly using quantitative methods.
I'm collaborating with some brilliant researchers on various projects, including studying online conversations about climate change and how climate science is shared in social media, mapping scholarly communication in social media and investigating how researchers use Twitter and other social media, investigating meaning and validity of altmetrics, and studying Twitter conversations about diabetes.
