Research Interests

My research interests at the moment are two-fold: First, I focus on the concept and practices of ownership. Our joint project of four researchers experiments with the notion of post-ownership as a tool to examine the trajectories of economic transition and the discourses concerning them. Second, I am interested in more-than-human economies, especially in the context of food production. In my PhD research I explored the multispecies livelihoods of small-scale food production and food self-provisioning in Finland. With academic background in gender studies, I use feminist perspectives, theories, and methodologies in my work, with a particular interest in feminist postanthropocentric approaches.
