Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

My current work spans two topical areas:

1. Algorithmic governance and transparency, at Faculty of Law, Academy of Finland project 'AlgoT - Potential and boundaries of algorithmic transparency'; Ethical framing and conceptualization of the emerging data economy in a Kone foundation project 'Ihmiskeskeinen datatalous - totta vai tarua?' at the faculty of Social Sciences.

2. Insurance medicine, funded by a recent personal postdoctoral grant from Kone foundation. The project examines the practices and rationale of combining medical ethics and right-to-benefits -thinking in the specified field.

My dissertation (2020) handled medical expertise in Helsinki District court from the perspective of science and technology studies, with emphasis on judges' evaluation of evidence, advanced MRI technology, and clinical practice guidelines in court.

I teach and coordinate an annual doctoral studies -level course on science, expertise and society.
