Personal profile

Research interests

I defended my PhD in World Politics in the summer of 2018, and the dissertation discussed the politics of corporate tax avoidance. I have published extensively on private forms of political power, ranging from the mechanisms of corporate tax avoidance to the role of consultants in public sector governance. I have also published several articles and books related to global development policy and its economic governance (mostly in Finnish).
