Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I am working as a full time doctoral candidate within the History and Cultural Heritage program in the University of Helsinki since January 2019.

In my dissertation, I research how the ideas of British Regular Army officers about their identity and role developed during and as a result of the Great War.

My specialty is employing psychological theories and research results as tools for better understanding history.

I also maintain a blog with updates every few weeks about various topics, especially concerning the relationship between rationality and historians.
