I’m an activist-scholar focusing on postgrowth and postfossil economies, work and livelihoods.

My research explores a growing number of practitioners and diverse activities that challenge economic growth as an imperative. In addition to conceptual work, I study examples and advance ongoing initiatives.


Post-fossil work

During 2023–2024 I work in University of Turku in a project “Towards a post-fossil working life: Ecologically and socially sustainable work in an era of sustainability disruption”. It is funded by The Finnish Work Environment Fund. Read more.
