Areas of expertise
I am the author of two scientific books, "Crime, Bodies and Space. Towards an Ethical Approach to Urban Policies in the Information Age", published by Routledge (in the series Space, Materiality and the Normative) in 2019, and "Undocumented and Their Everyday Lives. The Case of Finland", co-authored with Jussi S. Jauhiainen, published by Springer (IMISCOE Research series) in 2021.
Teaching responsibilities in the MAAN7741 Systemschange.now – Systems Thinking in Global Change Research (Theme Humans and Change in Eco-Social Systems), 5 ECTS.
Currently, I am carrying out two projects: at the Division of Geography I am studying the relationship between nature and well-being of immigrants in physical and digital environments (LUMODI project, funded by the City of Turku); at the Faculty of Law, I am conducting a research on how cybercrime and surveillance affect the spatio-legal dimension(s) that each individual materially embodies, and influence the design of urban space itself. My research draws on various lines of thought, such as information theory, information ethics, non-representational theories, public policies, surveillance studies, and migration studies.
