Robert joined as the Defence and Security Team at Spinverse in June 2022 as an Analyst.

Prior to joining Spinverse, Robert has gained substantive experience and insights working with policy questions regarding transatlantic security, defence and trade issues. Among other activities, he has served as a peacekeeper in the Finnish contingency to the UN peacekeeping force in Southern Lebanon and worked with policy issues at Amcham Finland and the Johns Hopkins University’s SAIS Center for Transatlantic Relations (based in Washington, D.C.). He has also gained valuable perceptions from participating in the civil society spectrum.

Robert holds a B.Soc.Sc. in political science and public administration from the University of Helsinki and is currently finishing his M.Sc. His studies have included advanced studies in journalism and communication in addition to strategy and defence policy at the National Defence University.

Outside of work, Robert likes to read mostly non-fiction books (and discover secondhand bookshops), play the guitar, tennis, and find new places for running.
