PhD, Adjunct Research Scholar at the International Institute for Popular Culture (IIPC), Senior Lecturer (Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge)
I was awarded my PhD in Spring 2007 with a dissertation on the cultural history of computer viruses. It was later published by Peter Lang (New York) with the title Digital Contagions: A Media Archaeology of Computer Viruses. In 2004 I published my first monograph Koneoppi. Ihmisen, teknologian ja median kytkennät on the bodily configurations of humans and machines, and the theoretical implications of technical media for cultural theory. Nowadays I am interesred in topics like the cultural history of media technologies, new media and several theoretical topics such as new materialist cultural analysis. I am also writing a book with the working title 'Insect Media: A Bestial Archaeology'. I work as Senior Lecturer at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge but continue as Adjunct Research Scholar at the International Institute for Popular Culture, Turku.
