Oma esittely

My research encompasses global mobility, different forms and practices of solidarity and resistance, and the concept and practical implications of intersectionality. In my current work, I focus increasingly on mobilities in the so-called Global South and in possibilities and forms of decolonizing knowledge production.


I received my doctorate in Political Science from the University of Tampere in 2011. Prior to joining the NSR programme, I worked at Institute for Advanced Social Research (UTA), Nordic Africa Institute in Uppsala, Sweden, and Tampere Peace Research Institute (Tapri/UTA), where I continue to teach and supervise at the International Master’s Programme PEACE.
