Research

My research focuses on the multiple relationships between humans and the different spatio-legal configurations they embody: segregated or criminalized spaces (Ph.D. research project, IUAV University & University of Westminster, 2014-2017); migratory spaces (PostDoc research project, Division of Geography, University of Turku, 2018-2019); natural spaces (PostDoc research project, Division of Geography, University of Turku, 2020-2021); hybrid (physical/digital) spaces (PostDoc research project, Faculty of Law, University of Turku, 2022 onwards). I draw on non-representational theories and new materialism, and through these lenses I have been studying spatio-legal phenomena.
