About me

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at Practical Philosophy, University of Helsinki, and part of the TINT research group. My research focuses on shared and collective responsibility. This includes questions such as what collectively caused structural harms we can be complicit in, what is the role of individuals in changing institutional practises, or what we mean by the responsibility of collective agents.

I wrote my thesis on collective responsibility for climate change and was awarded my PhD in January 2018.  The next year, I was awarded the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Global Fellowship for my research project ‘Complicity: Individual Responsibility in Collective Contexts’. The project ran from August 2019 to July 2021. During the first year of the project, I was a Visiting Scholar at the University of California, Berkeley. The project was funded by the European Commission.
