I am a social justice activist who uses research and scientific evidence to shine light on endemic social issues such as racism, discrimination, subordination, misrecognition, exploitation and more. Theories and logical frameworks grounded in the day-to-day of life are my happy place, and in ideal world, somebody would pay me just to read and read, and read, and then speak in that ratio 3:1.

My research interprets and problematises labour market structures for migrant workers in the EU from a social constructivist lens, using multiple theories including theories of citizenship rights, welfare, disaggregated human agency, social construction, and justice among others. My doctoral dissertation analysed the social productive capacity, and function of Finland’s migration regimes such as the temporary international student permit regime, and draws critical links to Finnish welfare and labour market segmentation in Finland. My post-doc research takes a new angle to examine 2 emergent phenomena: 

(1) The transformative potential and the immediate and delayed impacts of the twin green and digital transitions on labour market structures and labour market institutions such as unions, welfare, social security, and social dialogue in Europe. 
(2) The implication of Europe’s sinking islands on climate migration preparedness in Europe as a whole and in the most immediately affected countries, using the Netherlands, the UK, and Italy as analytical cases.
