In 2014, I became Doctor of Social Sciences (Politices Doktor) in Political Sciences at the University of Helsinki with the thesis "Our People a Tight-knit Family at the Same Protective Roof: A Critical Study of Gendered Conceptual Metaphors at Work in Radical Right Populism". In 2017, I was awarded the title of Docent (Dosentti) in Political Sciences at the University of Helsinki.

Ongoing research and teaching
My research focuses mainly on issues of right-wing populist and extreme right political communication; political discourses aimed at normalizing extreme right opinions; as well as the construction and maintenance of various power hierarchies within anti-gender discourses. I examine these phenomena in a comparative perspective both in the Nordic countries, with a focus on Sweden and Finland, as well as in Central Europe, with focus on Hungary and Romania.
I teach and supervise at all levels.
