Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Centre for Nordic Studies, University of Helsinki. Trained as a political historian I have studied political and economic thought in Finland and Sweden, especially the ideas of applying democracy to the economy and working life. Beginning from spring 2020, I am working in the project Neoliberalism in the Nordics led by Professor Jenny Andersson in Uppsala University and financed by Riksbankens Jublieumsfond. 

My research interests include:

  • intellectual and conceptual history
  • history of political ideologies
  • history and theory of democracy
  • history of economics and economic policy
  • history of working life and labour market relations
  • theory and methodology of historiography
  • history of the Nordic countries

I have taught undergraduate courses and given lectures on democracy and labour market relations in the Nordic countries.
