Supervision of master's thesis in the field of international environmental law

 

I am a PhD Research Fellow at the Norwegian Centre for the Law of the Sea (NCLOS) and the Arctic University of Norway. My PhD project "Constructing a global legal response to marine plastic pollution" focuses on the marine plastic pollution problem and ways to combat the problem with international law and circular economy. I am passionate about the wellbeing of oceans and thus my research interests concern the protection of the marine environment.

I have also been part of the interdisciplinary research project "MARine Plastic Pollution in the Arctic: origin, status, costs and incentives for prevention". (https://norut.no/en/prosjekter/marine-plastic-pollution-arctic-origin-status-costs-and-incentives-prevention-polarprog)

Prior to joining the NCLOS/UiT, I have received a law degree from the University of Turku (Turku, Finland), and worked as a legal advisor for the Emissions Trading Team at the Finnish Energy Authority and as a legal advisor for the Finnish Tax Administration.
