Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I am a doctoral researcher at the University of Helsinki, interested in environmental questions and societal knowledge-making practices. My research draws on science and technology studies and environmental policy. I am currently working on my doctoral dissertation on energy policy debates in Finland at the University of Helsinki.

My doctoral dissertation examines the relationships between change and stability in energy policy and the ways in which energy transitions are debated and negotiated in Finland. My research spans energy policy debates in parliament, local government, civil society, media and academia in Finland. I began my dissertation in 2015 as part of the Academy of Finland funded DEFEND project (Decentralizing Finland’s energy regime: the triggers and dynamics of transition, 2014-2018). To complete my dissertation, I received a one-year grant from DENVI (Doctoral Programme in Interdisciplinary Environmental Sciences) in 2019.

I was a visiting Fulbright Fellow at the Science, Technology and Society Fellows Program at Harvard University during the academic year 2017-2018. I enjoy taking part in academic debates beyond academia and developing collaboration with other researchers. I am a board member of the Society for Environmental Social Science (YHYS ry.) and editorial member at Versus – an online platform for popularizing research. I am part of the STS Helsinki research collective and have contributed to developing the STS Helsinki Seminar series.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Policy from the London School of Economics and Political Science and a Master’s degree in Social and Public Policy from the University of Helsinki. Prior to beginning my PhD, I worked as a researcher at Finland Futures Research Centre at the University of Turku, examining the intersections of climate change policy and development policy in the Mekong region and East Africa.
