Her PhD dissertation (2013, University of Turku) focused on the economics of the early import and exhibitions based cinema operations in Finland covering the whole field of operations instead of one or few operators or features of the industry. Besides the economics of film, she has several publications e.g. on actors, publicity and perceptions of film.
