Maria Hofman-Bergholm, Ph.L., (b. 1978) is currently working as a research and development expert at Centria University of Applied Sciences, mainly in a research project called Nordic Nature Health Hub. She has completed a Licentiate of Philosophy (Education) in 2014 and is still affiliated with Åbo Akademi University as a PhD student. Her research focus has been on teacher education and sustainability. During her doctoral studies, she has co-authored two articles and published three articles on her own, all with a focus on sustainability and education. She has also contributed to writing book chapters, and was most recently asked to contribute to a Springer book series called “Integrated Science”. When she became employed at Centria University of Applied Sciences (2019-), she got involved with the training of entrepreneurs, which has extended her field of research to include areas beyond basic education and teacher training. This has broadened her research perspective and the understanding that for a sustainable future we need to change more than basic education. We need to involve the whole society and integrate different perspectives from different research areas.
