I have worked at the University of Vaasa since 2013 and during the years 2009-2010. My current position is Assistant Professor of Business Law (tenure track). I am also the Master Program Manager of Business Law. I have earlier worked at the banking sector.

Teaching

I am a responsible teacher of the following courses at the University of Vaasa:

ICT Law

I supervise Bachelor's and Master's theses as well as Doctoral dissertations.

I have also taught, for instance, at the Open University/ University of Vaasa, the Kokkola Master's Program of the University of Vaasa, the University of Helsinki (the Vaasa Unit of Legal Studies) and the University of Tampere.

Research

I am a member of the Business Law, Information and Knowledge Research Group. My main research interests are investor decision-making, investment advice and robo-advisors, business decision-making and director liability, and themes where digitalization and business law intersect.

I have presented my research both in Europe and in the USA. My paper "Robo-Advisors and Investors: Enhancing Human-Robot Interaction Through Information Design" was nominated among the short-listed papers of the LexisNexis Best Paper Award 2017 in the IRIS2017 conference. In 2010, The Finnish Corporate Law Association awarded me with the Pro Gradu award.
