About me

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Turku, Finland. My research interests include cultural history, urban history, nineteenth-century studies, history of emotions, popular culture, digital history and humour. 

My first monograph Comical Modernity. Popular Humour and the Transformation of Urban Space in Late Nineteenth-Century Vienna came out with Berghahn Books in 2019. 

I earned my PhD in 2017. Between 2017 and 2020 I contributed to the research project “Viral Culture in Early Nineteenth-Century Europe” led by Academy Professor Hannu Salmi. In 2019 I worked as a visiting researcher at the Center for the History of Emotions at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin. In the academic year 2020-2021 I am working in the research project “Mobility of Words and Places of Knowledge: Learned Communities in Early Nineteenth-Century Finland” led by Heli Rantala and funded by the Kone Foundation.
