Areas of expertise
Currently I am conducting a 4-year postdoctoral research project on legitimacy of private security (University of Turku). I have worked as a researcher at Institute of Criminology and Legal Policy (University of Helsinki), most recently on crimes against businesses. I participated in an interdisciplinary research project on asylum seeker decisions. Together with international researchers we have led a comparative project about experiences of policing among ethnic minority youth in the Nordic countries.
I have experience in teaching criminology in different universities. I am an Editor in chief of 'Haaste' trimestrial publication.
