Below you will find short descriptions of the team members, and their research interests.
My research interests include the i) developmental relationships between motivation, achievement and subjective well-being, ii) situational dynamics in motivation and task engagement, and iii) mathematics learning and its antecedents and outcomes. I like to play with statistics software and build models to explain complex data.

My research interests focus on learning environment from viewpoints of motivation and learning and in different contexts (i.e., military education, physical education, and simulations). Examinations of this field in various contexts and with different approaches and methods offer intriguing and challenging paths to explore.

My research interests focus on the interplay between students’ individual characteristics (e.g., individual interest, self-control, and competence perceptions) and motivational states (e.g., situational interest and self-efficacy). I enjoy thinking about complex person × context interactions, and the possibility of coherence in variability in students’ motivation.

My work links the study of motivation with well-being and explores both among children and young people, especially during educational transitions. Specifically, I investigate individual differences in and developmental trajectories of achievement motivation (e.g., achievement goal orientations, task values) and their associations with various educational and emotional outcomes. My teaching is mostly related to educational psychology and research methods. I am a Collegium Researcher at the Turku Institute for Advanced Studies (TIAS), University of Turku, during 1.7.2019-31.12.2021, and a Docent of Education, especially research on student motivation and well-being, at the University of Eastern Finland.

My dissertation focuses on the relationships between motivation, self-regulation, cognitive skills and academic performance. My special areas of interest are math difficulties and executive functions deficits and interventions targeting either or both of these. I'm also interested in finding the best methods for studying these with a current bias towards person-centered, intensive longitudinal assessments.

My current research interests include the early development and situational and longitudinal dynamics of students’ interest and competence perceptions - "the want and can" of motivation. I am also eager to learn more about different statistical methods, which enable studying the evolvement of motivation in specific task situations and over time.

My dissertation focuses on the dimensionality of innate temperamental sensitivities and the impact of these sensitivities on motivation in a learning context. I have a keen interest in developing my skills in statistical methodology, in order to examine these complex connections more accurately. Ultimately, I hope my research might produce new knowledge that could be used to help all students find the joy of learning.

My research interests focus on students’ achievement motivation and well-being outcomes. Specifically, my PhD project explores the diverse patterns of university students’ motivation (expectancy-value-cost), their development over time, how the different patterns contribute to students’ well-being, and the role students’ study-related experiences play in these relationships.

My research interests are in motivation, perfectionism, and academic well-being outcomes. My dissertation focuses on perfectionism, well-being, and achievement striving during secondary education, with a special focus on gender differences and developmental dynamics. I want to learn more about statistical methods to understand better different aspects influencing motivation.
