Kadri is finishing her doctoral thesis at Tallinn University on the topic of co-creation platforms at the local level.
Social innovation also guides her choices in the free time, for example, Kadri contributes to the activities of Rõuge Village University and is busy launching the Estonian social innovation community. She takes time off from improving the world by working in her home garden.
