Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I am a PhD student, working in the Doctoral Programme in History and Cultural Heritage at the University of Helsinki under the supervision of Niklas Jensen-Eriksen and Anu Lahtinen (Funding: 4 years PhD position 2017-2020). 

My dissertation project Dutch Commercial Diplomacy with Denmark and Sweden in 1675-1697 deals with the complex relations between the early modern foreign policies and trade with a special focus on the Dutch merchants as economic interest groups.


The research questions of the project are:

Which economic interest groups had influence over the Dutch-Scandinavian commercial relations in 1675-1697?

What repercussions did this involvement have, and if it was successful in terms of merchant interests, why was it so?


My special research interests lie in the fields of new diplomatic history, early modern state formation, evolution of commercial institutions and neutrality, European maritime history and colonial history.

I spent the autumn semester 2019 as a guest researcher at the Institute for History in Leiden University, under the supervision of Cátia Antunes and Maurits Ebben.

After finishing my MA in 2016, I received a prize for the best dissertation in Finnish and Nordic History. ________________________________________________________________________________
