I explore the politics of sustainable food system transitions from different perspectives. Currently I study the justice impacts of the food system transition for farmers, as well as the markets and transitional potential of novel plant-based protein products. I also do legal research, for example related to sustainable land use and the regulation of novel plant-based foods.

I am finalizing my PhD project at the University of Eastern Finland. The project explores the changing technologies and practices of livestock breeding, and the impacts of these changes within the food system more broadly.
