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.

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 acting editor-in-chief of the Global Journal of Animal Law.

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).
