In both her research and teaching she has combined empirical (mainly ethnographic) work with non-representational theories and new 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 (Research Council of Finland research project, Faculty of Law, University of Turku, 2022 onwards).

She is currently PI of JuDiCe (Justice in Digital Spaces), funded by the Research Council of Finland.
