Description of research and teaching

I am doing an article-based dissertation on political humor in the hybrid media environment. My articles and manuscripts deal with gonzo journalism, TV news satire, populist discourse, and humor in activism.

I am working in the following research projects:

Political Humor in Power Struggles of Democracy (Kone Foundation):


Humour Scandals (Ku Leuven):


Whirl of Knowledge (Academy of Finland):


Humor in the European Public Sphere (Una Europa):


During the academic year of 2019-2020 I was visiting Klein College of Media and Communication, Temple University, as a Fulbright Fellow. My research stay in the US was also funded by The American-Scandinavian Foundation.
