In both her research and teaching she has combined empirical (mainly ethnographic and autoethnographic) work with non-representational theories and legal materialism, and through these lenses she has studied a variety of spatio-legal phenomena within the broader fields of human and legal geography: 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); blended (physical/digital) spaces (Academy of Finland PostDoc research project, Faculty of Law, University of Turku, 2022 onwards).
She is currently PI of her own Academy of Finland research project JuDiCe (Justice in Digital Spaces).
