I am currently Assistant Professor in Philosophy of Law at the department of Public Law and Governance. Prior to joining Tilburg in August 2022, I obtained a doctorate cum laude in legal theory at the University of Helsinki in 2020 and worked as a postdoctoral researcher. In my doctoral dissertation, I analyzed how a selection of legal and political philosophers deal with paradoxes in law.
My background is in philosophy, and I am interested in analyzing legal globalization and its material-technological underpinnings from the perspectives of legal and political philosophy, theory of constitutionalism as well as philosophy of technology.
In addition to my doctoral work, I have published articles in continental political philosophy and philosophy of human rights. I have also translated several books in philosophy into Finnish.
In my current research, I aim to develop a philosophical-sociological theory of political constitutionalism in the context of algorithmic governance.
I teach and coordinate the philosophy courses at the Global Law Bachelor program. I am very keen on teaching the somewhat unconventional topic of philosophy of global law and developing the courses further.
I aim to create philosophy courses that are relevant for global law students in particular and that focus on how philosophical theories and concepts help us navigate contemporary legal, political and social phenomena with global significance.
