In my research and teaching, I am generally interested in how societies and laws evolve in tandem, how groups mobilise to change their position, and how law intersectionally includes and excludes individuals and groups.

My research has been published in discipline-leading international journals, including Modern Law Review, Feminist Legal Studies, Human Rights Law Review and International Journal of Constitutional Law. Among my most prominent publications are my single-authored monograph Grievance Formation, Rights and Remedies: Involuntary Sterilisation and Castration in the Nordics, 1930s–2020s (Cambridge University Press 2023) and the co-edited (together with Dr Adrian Howe) volume Contesting Femicide: Feminism and the Power of Law Revisited (Routledge 2019).

My research has been recognised with multiple research grants, including the Icelandic Research Fund (2020-2023), the Finnish Research Council (2014-2019) and the Swedish Cultural Foundation in Finland (2020-2022). I have also held multiple international visiting fellowships, for example at the University of Melbourne (2018) and the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology (2019). 

I lead the research group 'Trust in Law' in the research project Mobile Futures: Diversity, Trust and Two-way Integration, funded by the Strategic Research Council of the Academy of Finland.

I am (together with Dr Laura Tammenlehto) the co-editor of Retfærd, the Nordic Journal of Law and Justice. I am also the co-founder (together with Dr Miriam Tedeschi) of the research environment Law, Space and Justice at the Turku Law Faculty.

I am particularly interested in supervising doctoral researchers and postgraduate students from underrepresented groups in academia.

My main working languages are English, Finnish, Scandinavian languages (Swedish, Danish, Norwegian) and Turkish.
