About me

I direct the University of Tampere part of the RELATE Centre of Excellence, and lead the Space and Political Agency Research Group (SPARG) . My research lies at the intersection of political geography and global and transnational sociology, with focus on the study of political subjectivity, political agency, forced migration and transnationalization. I am particularly interested in the political agency of people in vulnerable positions. I have also studied discourses and practices of territoriality, borders and national identities, urban planning and civic participation, and the methodology of human geography.
