20160216_133342 (2)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 the Editor-in-Chief of the Global Journal of Animal Law, Vice President of the Finnish Legal Philosophy Society (Finnish IVR). and Vice President of Finnish Animal Rights Lawyers.

Apart from my academic occupations, I sing classical music (mostly art song, such as Lieder), enjoy the Third Golden Age of Television and play computer games (mostly RPGs).
