Head of research training

I am a scholar of religion, but my research is characterized by interdisciplinarity approach that combines theoretical insights and methodological tools from both social sciences and humanities. In addition to religiosity, my research interests include such topics as nationalism and migration. My areas of expertise are Islam and contemporary Paganism in Russia. In my current research, I focus on the governance and the representation of Islam in contemporary Russia. In addition, I participate in the project “Migration, Shadow Economy and Parallel Legal Orders in Russia”. Starting on August 2019, I am working as the acting research coordinator. In this position, I perform administrative and operational duties, but I am also engaged in planning and developing the research at the Aleksanteri Institute. I am co-editing Aleksanteri Insight with my colleague Dmitry Yagodin and the Religion and Spirituality in Russia & Eastern Europe with Maija Penttilä. I hold the title of Docent in Study of Religions at the University of Helsinki. Accepting PhD Students
