I am Finnish-American, and I grew up in The Netherlands. In 2013 I completed my BSc Ecological Science with Honours in Conservation and Ecological Science at the University of Edinburgh (Scotland).

Following my BSc, I moved on to my PhD at the University of Leicester (School of Geography, Geology and the Environment), working with the Borneo Nature Foundation. My fantastic supervisory team included Prof Susan Page (University of Leicester), Dr Caroline Upton (University of Leicester) and Dr Mark Harrison (University of Leicester and Borneo Nature Foundation).

You can find an outline of my PhD thesis here (in the ‘Research’ drop down menu).

I am also an environmental and social justice activist, predominantly with Leicester Friends of the Earth and Leicester Stand up to Racism. You can follow my posts about my experiences on Twitter and Instagram.
