I am a researcher in CARDIPS (Cultural and religious diversity in primary school) project in School of Historical and Contemporary Studies. I also work as an associate professor of religious education in theological faculty of Tartu Univeristy. I have worked on the EC Framework 6 project REDCo and researched how religion is perceived by young people in a secular context. I have used a mixed method approach to study young peoples' attitudes to religion and religious diversity. My main fields of interest are research on adolescents, their attitudes to religion and religious diversity, the contextuality of young people's attitudes in relation to religion; RE didactics and teacher strategies in relation to their biographies.
