PhD Student

Criminology, Law, and Justice


Heini is an international student whose main interests revolve around critical perspectives on policing and abuse of authority/power in combination with victimology. Her master's thesis studied online hate and harassment targeted at faculty in Finland using quantitative data from the Emerging Technologies Labs Cyberhate in Society project. While working at the Institute of Criminology and Legal Policy she co-wrote the first Finnish Everyday Problems, Disputes and Solution Survey report and worked on several other projects such as the Silent Agents Affected by Legislation. Through volunteer work, she has familiarized herself with mediation as part of the criminal justice system as well as assisted crime victims at Victim Support Finland.
