Had a blast giving my first PechaKucha talk at the Aalto University/Helsinki Design Week joint event on 7th Sept 2022! Check out the speakers and event info.

August denotes the a start of yet another new academic year and for me it meant one big change in particular: I started my new job as an Aalto Research Fellow at the Transdisciplinary Arts Studies unit (TAS, prev. YoYo) at the Aalto University's School of Arts, Design and Architecture (Aalto ARTS). Looking forward to working with the great team led by Prof. Christopher Bratton and teaching aesthetics as well as continuing my work on environmental and urban aesthetics.
