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, although mostly in Finnish. My hobbies include (but are not limited to) cooking Japanese food, listening to alt country and folk music and electro, jogging and swimming, bourbons (especially ones with rye), and spending time in public saunas.
