I have been active as an academic in the field of Scandinavian and Baltic studies since 2007. I completed my PhD dissertation at University of Tartu, Estonia, in 2014, and joined UCL in 2015. My position is a split one with 0.5 FTE in Scandinavian Studies and 0.5 FTE in European Social and Political Studies (ESPS).

My primary research focus is on 20th century Scandinavian and Baltic political history, with a particular interest in contacts between the Scandinavian and the Baltic states. I also have an academic side-interest in Medieval Old Norse-Icelandic literature and culture.

Most of my teaching concerns 20th century European political history, especially the history of Scandinavian and Baltic politics, society, and culture. I have also taught modules in Medieval Studies, including overview courses in Old Norse literature.

I have administrative experience as the previous head and curricula manager of the Department of Scandinavian Studies at University of Tartu, and have held several administrative roles at UCL. I have also been active as a translator, mainly from Icelandic and Old Icelandic into Estonian; of both modern and Medieval literature. In 2016, I was awarded an Estonian literary debut prize.
