Dr. Sari Mullola, a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow (The Academy of Finland) at NCCF, earned her doctoral degree (Teacher-perceived student temperament and educational competence predicting student school achievement) in Educational Sciences at the University of Helsinki, Finland. Her past research has focused on the associations of individual (e.g., personality, motivation and daily habits) and work related environmental factors (e.g., perceived stress, work load, work engagement and organizational justice) with lifelong learning and well-being over different developmental trajectories. At NCCF, her research focus is to look at the genetic data on dopamine and serotonin as interacting with environments including school, neighborhood and family variation predicting student temperament-based behavior. Dr. Mullola leads the FTProWell Study at the University of Helsinki (i.e., Finnish Novice Teachers’ Professional Wellbeing and Continuance in the Occupation: Developmental Pathways and Underlying Mechanisms with Individual and Environmental Resources). She has also worked in the Finnish Health Care Professionals’ Study led by Professor Marko Elovainio and in the Light Study (i.e., Parents, Teachers, and Children’s Learning: Who Impacts Whom?) led by Professor Kaisa Aunola.
