Personal profile

Curriculum vitae

I am Associate Professor (Tenure Track) of Sociology at the University of Helsinki, Department of Social Research. I joined the Discipline of Sociology in 2011 after having been a postdoctoral research fellow at the Centre for Research on Ethnic Relations and Nationalism, Swedish School of Social Science, University of Helsinki and a Visiting Research Fellow at the Sussex Centre for Migration Research, University of Sussex. I hold a D.Phil in Migration Studies from the University of Sussex and a Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Helsinki.

My research interests include sociology of work, care, ageing, globalisation, sociology of migration, gender studies, ethnic and racial studies, social theories and ethnographic methods. I am currently leading a research project Struggles over Home and Citizenship funded by Kone Foundation (2018-2021). Previously, I have led a project entitled Migrant Youth Employment - Politics of Recognition and Boundaries of Belonging (RECOGNITION) funded by the University of Helsinki, Kone Foundation and Emil Aaltonen Foundation (2014-2017) and Insecure Lives - Irregular Migration and Precarious Work in Finland (INSECURE) funded by the Academy of Finland (2015-2018).

My work has been published e.g. in Sociology, Men and Masculinities, Ethnic and Racial Studies and Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies. I am the editor-in-chief of Nordic Journal of Migration Research and vice-head of discipline of Sociology at the University of Helsinki, Finland. In 2017-2019 I served as Vice-President of European Sociological Association and in 2015-2017 I served as a board member of European Sociological Association.
