I recently discovered that I'm definitely not superhuman, and that 8-hours of sleep, a good run, and some non-academic books go a long way. These things aside, here's what I’m up to now:


I'm working on my Ph.D. at a glacial pace (in a rapidly melting environment!). These days you'll find me writing dissertation chapters at the Marine and Environmental Law Institute of the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie University in Canada, where I will be in a Visiting Graduate Scholar in 2019/2020. You can read more about my research here.

Want to talk post-doctoral opportunities? I'm all ears.


Last year, together with Gosia Smieszek and Leena Rantamaula, I co-founded “Women of the Arctic” (WoA), a non-profit association registered in Finland. WoA aims to raise awareness, support, and maintain a focus on women’s and gender-related issues in the Arctic.

Together with What Took You So Long, we’ve released a series of interviews with eleven women who live in, work on, and engage with the Arctic. These videos are published on Plan A, our digital storytelling platform on women and gender in the Arctic. You can find the first in a series of videos here.

Our interview series Aurora, directed by Erica Dingman, publishes monthly interviews that champion women and gender equality inclusive of a wide range of voices. You can read them here.
