I’m working as a University Lecturer of History at the University of Tampere, Finland. My doctoral thesis on witch trials in Finland was published in 1992. Once I also worked in the private sector as an entrepreneur. So there have been two very different worlds in my working life. I have lived in several places in Finland and, furthermore, also in Latvia, in the UK, Poland and four years in Moscow. Nowadays I stay mostly in Tampere, although Helsinki is still very close to me.
