I am a doctoral candidate in public and social policy. In my dissertation, I research the policies and ideas purported to improve Finland’s national competitiveness during the 2010s. 

In 2018-2022 I worked in the “Tiedontuotannon regiimit ja asiantuntijavalta (TIRAS)” research project hosted by the University of Helsinki.
