I am a post-doctoral researcher, writer and visual story teller with a background in African literature. I am very interested in cultural expressions and forms of inscription beyond text, currently working on the dynamics of African cities and their various sociocultural manifestations. You can have a look at some of my most recent photographs on Ello, and short films on Vimeo.

In 2021 I am writing my first novel as well as occasional blog entries in Finnish. You can easily filter entries according to language via tags at the end of each post, or via these links: in English and in Finnish /suomeksi.
