Research interests

I'm working as a researcher in University of Lapland and the Multidimensional Tourism Institute. I'm on the final stage of my PhD thesis on the uncanny role of sleep in contemporary society. I'm currently working in a project on animals and responsible tourism (MTI), where we use a action-oriented research approach to enhance the welfare of animals used in tourism, and the knowledge thereof. In the future I will be concentrating on research taking part in the non-human turn and human-animal studies.
