I am a lawyer and PhD researcher currently working on my dissertation at the EUI in Florence, Italy. I hold master’s and bachelor’s degrees in Law from the University of Helsinki, where I focused on human rights, constitutional law, and public international law. During my master’s studies, I spent a semester at the University of Seville studying public international law and human rights. In addition to my degrees I have worked in several expert level positions in governmental and non-governmental organisations.
I am especially interested in critical outlooks on the law and its application. My main fields of study are in human rights law, fundamental rights, law and gender, and feminist legal theory. More specifically, my doctoral research focuses on the margin of appreciation doctrine in European Court of Human Rights practice from a feminist perspective. I aim to highlight gendered human rights issues in ECtHR practice.
