I am a specialist in the study of transnational screen media with a focus on both Nordic media cultures and environmental considerations in media production. I am an editor of Journal of Scandinavian Cinema and a docent (affiliate professor) in film and television studies at the University of Helsinki.
I have published seven books (including three monographs and four edited collections) and edited five journal special issues in transnational and ecocritical media studies. These focus on areas such as transnational production and distribution networks, audiences, genre production, cultural policy and media regulation. I have published 21 peer reviewed articles for journals such as Studies in Documentary Film and Film International and book chapters for a wide range of international collections. Topics range from producing documentaries for domestic broadcasting to indigenous film practice, from the use of digital platforms in genre production to adaptations of television shows across cultures.
Furthermore, I am contracted to write the monographs Environmental Management of the Media (Routledge, 2017) and Nordsploitation: History, Industry, Audiences (Bloomsbury, 2018). I currently lead a British Academy project on the environmental footprint of European screen production.
