She holds MA degrees in Social and Cultural Anthropology (University of Helsinki, 2008), and in Anthropology of Human Rights and Social Movements (New University of Lisbon, 2013).
Her previous research projects have focused on textual and visual discursive practices related to human rights and social justice in institutional and organizational European contexts.
