After working as a librarian nearly 14 years, I joined the ranks of academic people in 2013 by defending PhD Thesis at University of Tartu and Vrije Universiteit Brussel (thus, a joint PhD). In 2019-2021 I worked as a post-doc research fellow at Lund University. My interests involve cultural participation, visitor engagement of museums or libraries over social media, information culture, information literacy, knowledge work in the context of acceleration of social time. Lately, I've been exploring the affordances of AI chatbots in educational settings.
