Ari Kurlin



I started working at Cupore in September 2018. My special expertise is in quantitative research methods: data collection, analysis and reporting.

Graduated M.Sc. (Admin.) in 2011 from the University of Tampere, I majored in Regional Studies and minored in Administrative Science and Local Governance. In my master’s thesis 2010 I combined quantitative and qualitative research methods to assess locals’ experiences in Valkeakoski town’s economic change cycle. As a part of my degree, I also studied City and Regional Development at the University North Carolina at Chapel Hill, United States.

Before coming to Cupore, I have worked in 2007-2018 in various research teams and projects at the University of Tampere, Tampere University of Technology and Innolink Research ltd. These have covered e.g. higher education graduate employment, migration, and innovation environment research.
