I am a political scientist, currently acting as a senior lecturer at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland. I am also a research fellow at the Hannah Arendt Center for Political Studies at the University of Verona, Italy. My work focuses on political theory and international relations, albeit with frequent visits to the field of domestic politics.

More specifically, my areas of research include (see bio, publications, and publications by theme for more details):

  • Hannah Arendt‘s political thought, and 20th century/contemporary political theory
  • The role of facts, truth and experience in democratic politics
  • Resilience and security politics
  • Contemporary world political events, trends, and contestations

I am currently working on a research project on post-truth politics, fact-checking and truth-telling, drawing both from contemporary phenomena and debates, and from my political theory background. My current research is funded by the KONE Foundation.
