I am interested in power relations on the labor market. My dissertation is situated in the cross-disciplinary fields of political economy and industrial relations.

More specifically, I focus on the institutional and organizational factors that shape and are shaped by labor market actors. I do qualitative research to explain how and why trade unions, employer associations and the state attempt to collectively resolve issues like wage bargaining, inflation, inequality, competitiveness, and automation.

Related interest include lobbying/advocacy, think tanks, and labor market effects of artificial intelligence and algorithmic management.

My PhD studies are carried out as part of my job at the think tank Arena Idé, where I am chief analyst.

I have presented my research on numerous academic conferences, such as EGOS, AOM, SASE, ILERA, WINIR, and ESPAnet.

I am an alumni of Stanford University's 2022 SCANCOR PhD Workshop at Aalto University.

I will spend the spring of 2023 as visiting research fellow at Harvard University's Labor and Worklife Program.

Preliminary date for dissertation defense: January 2024.
