Artistic and research interests

I teach courses on Business Ethics and Philosophy of Social Science.

My current research projects include Bioeconomy and Justice (BioEcoJust), funded during 2017-2020 within the Academy of Finland's research programme BioFuture 2025, and The Role of Justice in Decisions Concerning Bioeconomy, funded during 2018-2021 by the Finnish Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry.

In an outside-the-box project I study the possibility of using rock operas with ethical, political, and philosophical themes as an ethics, bioethics, and business ethics education tool. The operas completed so far are Orkid and Playing God
