I am a Postdoctoral Researcher working on a project titled 'Embodied reproductive politics, arts-based methods and former Conservative Laestadian women' (2021-2023) at the Turku Institute of Advanced Studies (TIAS). 
I have published widely on feminist research methodology, e.g. my book 'Exploring data production in motion: Fluidity and Feminist Poststructuralism' was published by Myers Education Press in 2019.

I am a Visiting Scholar at the ReproSoc research group, University of Cambridge, UK, during Winter-Spring (Lent Term) 2022.


I co-write and publish within several international and interdisciplinary feminist research communities.

As a feminist scholar, I am passionate about research ethics, open-ended and collaborative ways of inquiry and questions concerning reproductive justice and sustainable ethics.
