Tutkijakollegium 2018 henkilökuvat-49I 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 Fellow 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 both the Finnish Legal Philosophy Society (Finnish IVR) and 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).
