I'm a University Lecturer in Communication Sciences at School of Engineering Science. My teaching focuses on media and communication from the prespective of digital media, journalism, crisis and science communication, public engagement, and politics and power in communciation.

I've previously worked as a lecturer and postdoctoral researcher in Tampere University, and I defended my doctoral dissertation in December 2020.

My research interests include emotions in digital media and journalism, crisis communication, and how these two themes are combined.

My hobbies include tabletop roleplaying games, Japanese popular culture and cooking.
