I successfully defended my PhD thesis at the EUI in 2019. The thesis critically and comparatively investigates the establishment, abolition and reparation of involuntary sterilisation and castration – focusing on Sweden, Norway and Finland.

I am interested and have published in the fields of gender, sexuality and law, human rights, socio-legal studies, criminal law and constitutional law

I strive to take part in both academic and wider social and political debates.

During the academic year 2019-2020, I am a Senior Researcher at the University of Turku, working on a project on sexual violence in the criminal legal process, commissioned by the Finnish Ministry of Justice.

Check out one of my most recent publications, the book Contesting Femicide: Feminism and the Power of Law Revisited (Routledge 2019) co-edited with Adrian Howe.
