I am a Finnish legal scholar and philosopher of law. I completed my PhD in 2017 at the Law Faculty of the University of Cambridge. My doctoral dissertation was entitled A Theory of Legal Personality. I am currently University Lecturer in Public Law at the University of Tampere. In September 2018, I will start a two-year fellowship at the Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies.
I am interested in theories of personality, the Hohfeldian analysis, rights, philosophy of language, and animal law.
I’ve published in English, Finnish and Swedish. For my work, I also read German and French, and you can email me on academic matters using these languages (though I might reply to you in English).
I am Vice President of the Finnish Legal Philosophy Society (Finnish IVR). and Vice President of Finnish Animal Rights Lawyers. Until recently, I was the Editor-in-Chief of the Global Journal of Animal Law,
Apart from my academic occupations, I sing (as a member of Lain Huuto and as a student at the Helsinki Conservatory of Music); enjoy the Third Golden Age of Television; and play computer games (mostly grand strategies and RPGs).
