I’m a social scientist with a background in criminology, sociology and social and economic history. I currently work at the University of Helsinki Institute of Criminology and Legal Policy as a Planning Officer. Most of my work is related to either the survey studies conducted at the Institute, including the Finnish Crime Victim Survey, or register-based studies on crime and criminal justice. My work mainly consists of data management. Time to time I also work on my PhD, which focuses on neighbourhood disadvantage and crime.
After serving a (more or less compulsory) year in the Finnish army, I got in to study sociology at the University Helsinki and received my bachelors degree in sociology in 2009. From there, I went to study criminology and sociology of law in a master’s program at the University of Turku, from where I graduated in 2012. Since then, I’ve worked at the National Institute for Health and Welfare and the National Research Institute for Legal Policy, since 2015 known as the Institute of Criminology and Legal Policy. I’m also active in several academic associations, The Finnish Society of Criminal Law and Criminology and The Finnish Association for Legal and Social Sciences.
