I have worked as a researcher at the Finnish Environment Institute (Syke) since November 2019. From January 2023 my research group within Syke has been the Politics of Knowledge group within the Societal Change unit.

In DECENT project I study the communication of climate and energy policies. In ORSI project my position is both a researcher and the communication manager.

Additionally, I am a PhD researcher at the University of Helsinki focusing on the relationship of climate change and economic growth in the media.

Previously, I have worked as a PR and communications manager and a program manager at a media-based institution, and as a journalist covering topics such as climate change and politics.

My current interests involve economics, communication and data science.
