I lead the work package '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. Among my most prominent publications are the co-edited (together with Dr Adrian Howe) volume Contesting Femicide: Feminism and the Power of Law Revisited (Routledge 2019) and my single-authored monograph Grievance Formation, Rights and Remedies: Involuntary Sterilisation and Castration in the Nordics, 1930s–2020s (Cambridge University Press 2023). I have carried out extensive fieldwork in the Nordic countries and held multiple international visiting fellowships, for example at the University of Melbourne (2018) and the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology (2019). My previous work experience includes working as a legal researcher at the Istanbul-based NGO TOHAV and a lecturer of criminal law at the Police College of Finland.

I am (together with Dr Tomi Tuominen) 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.
