Geography
Faculty of Science

I am a human geographer immersed in postcapitalist studies. My work is situated within feminist economic geography, critical social and spatial theory, and diverse forms of activism and social movements. I'm interested in anything and everything that seeks to build 'other worlds' in an age of ecological urgency and social unraveling. Currently, I work as a postdoctoral researcher in Johanna Sitomaniemi-San's project “'This doesn’t concern me:' Distance, relationality and responsibility amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic" funded by the Academy of Finland. In my PhD For Postcapitalist Studies: Inheriting Futures of Space and Economy (2021), I combined the work of feminist geographers J.K. Gibson-Graham and philosopher Jacques Derrida to explore how problematic inheritances are identified and negotiated in postcapitalist discourses, theories and practices. My empirical work on postcapitalist practices spans from counter-mapping to financial hacktivism and from translations of economic vocabulary to conceptual debates on 'postcapitalism'. I'm a member of the Community Economies Institute and a frequent contributor in Finnish debates on postcapitalist (im)possibility.
