Teenistuskäigu lisainfo
In my Ph.D dissertation, I explore the home-making process in Estonia’s rural area and the association between the concept of a “house” and that of a “home” in the current Estonia’s society.

I am keen on experimenting with anthropological methods such as auto-ethnography and practice-based methods.

During the first year of my Ph.D studies, I am developing a methodological model of Material Potentiality Complex to implement the practice-based research approach. It aims at encompassing the elaborated competencies/qualities of materials when being processed and utilized as construction materials in a vernacular house — the kind of competencies/qualities that are not inherently possessed by materials, but rather unearthed by the builder/dweller’s creativity and against his/her unique physical contacts. ;
