Personal profile

Curriculum vitae

I am an Academy Research Fellow (2021-2026) affiliated with the Faculty of Theology, University of Helsinki. My research interests include history of philosophy, medieval philosophical theology and emotion studies broadly understood. My recent publications include the co-edited volume Recognition and Religion: Contemporary and Historical Studies (Routledge 2019); and journal articles in academic journals such as Speculum, History of Political Thought, Journal of Medieval and Early Modern Studies and Medieval Encounters. I have published a monograph Richard of St. Victor’s Theory of Imagination (2014) in Brill’s series Investigating Medieval Philosophy. In 2019, I received the title of docent in the field of philosophy of religion at the University of Helsinki.
