Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I work in the Univeristy of Helsinki at the Faculty of Theology as Associate Professor (Docent) and senior university lecturer in the Department of Practical Theology. In my teaching activities, In my research and teaching I cover several practical-theological subjects and issues, including the study of religious communication, religion and culture, and law and religion.

As for my research activities, I was originally focused on questions concerning religious art and specifically the study of Orthodox icons. During the past ten years, I have made research on the larger field of religious communication; media and religion, rituals, social media, and also written on hymnology. Currently, I write also on questions of law and religion from Orthodox minority prespective, and make research on lay liturgical activity.
