In my PhD research, I explore how the experiences and feelings of loneliness intertwine with home: how home is lived, experienced and felt during both the transforming moments in life and the everyday. My focus is on young adults. I aim to explore what loneliness does in the relationship of young adults and their home.

My Master’s degree is in Human Geography and I have minored in Gender Studies, Literature, Environmental Politics, Philosophy and Finnish. I am interested in a wide range of topics around how we as humans experience different aspects of our lives and our everyday and how this is framed by our society and culture.
