Information om forskning och undervisning

I am University Lecturer in Museology in the Department of Cultures at the University of Helsinki, a founding member of the Centre of Excellence in Ancient Near Eastern Empires, and member of the Helsinki Institute of Sustainability Sciences. My research interests include museum and heritage ethics, object biographies, decolonisation and provenance issues, museum collection histories, and sensory archaeology. 

Currently I am Principal Investigator of two projects. The project "Making Home Abroad: Understanding Migrant Experiences and Heritage Implementation in Finland," funded by the Finnish Cultural Foundation, engages communities with stored-away Middle Eastern objects in Finnish museum collections through 3D scanning technologies, teaching toolkits, and pop-up museums. The project "Religious Responses to Climate Change in the Southern Levant," funded by a UH 3-year project, studies the impact of past climatic changes on the rise and fall of Jewish ritual purification baths in Hasmonean-Roman Judaea through hydrological modelling and contextual archaeological analysis. I am also a co-PI of the NOS-HS Workshop series "Changing Hands, Changing Meanings: Researching Cultural Heritage Trafficking in the Nordic Region," in coordination with researchers at the universities of Agder, Stockholm and Turku.
