I’m a social scientist working on populism, social media, democracy and youth participation in the research projects Citizens in the Making (University of Tampere) and Mobilizing the Disenfranchised (University of Jyväskylä). I’m a visiting researcher at the Scuola Normale Superiore in Florence, Italy, and a member of the Helsinki Research Group for Political Sociology. You’ll find all my publications right here and all my presentation slides are on SlideShare.

My other research interests include digital methods and politics on social media. I’ve given presentations in IC2S2ECPRISAESA and NSA; and regularly give interviews and guest lectures. Feel free to contact me about my research!
