Biography

I work as a University Lecturer in gender studies. My expertise includes history of sexuality, queer history, oral history, and cultural memory studies.



Research

I have studied the history of sex research and queer memories in Finland and Estonia. My current work in SEXDEM project examines the political discussion on homosexuality in Sweden and Estonia. My other project (together with Rebeka Põldsam, University of Tartu) is titled "Estonian-Finnish Lesbian Networks at the Early 1990s: Remembered and Narrated Transnational Connections".

During academic year 2022-23, I teach in English course "SUPU2028 Nordic Gendered Norms and Practices". My other courses are in Finnish. I also assess essays and exams as well as supervise thesis and dissertations.
