I am a post-doctoral researcher at Research Centre for Journalism, Media and Communication (COMET) at Tampere University, Finland. I am also member of the Visual Studies Lab at Tampere University. My research interests include climate visuals, attention, epistemology and user participation in digital media environments. My current project ‘Envisioning climate change’ studies how media users visualize climate emotions. The project also creates photography projects in order to reinterpret and re-visualize climate change imagery.
