Tua studies development expertise and turning ideas into improvements in different contexts of development efforts: product design, entrepreneurship, management, and teaching. She has a DSc degree in work psychology from the Aalto University School of Science, and an MA degree in cognitive science from the University of Helsinki. Tua has been part of the founding team of the Design Factory, and will gladly answer any questions you have about research at ADF.

In addition to research, Tua is a part of Design Factory efforts to promote developing university teaching. She also teaches an integrated course to promote reflection, setting learning goals and skill communication in the interdisciplinary bachelor-level Aaltonaut product development minor.

For the academic year 2016-17, Tua is visiting Stanford University, working in the Center for Design Research and Scandinavian Consortium for Organizational Research. Due to the time difference, the best way to reach her during this year is via e-mail!
