Welcome!

I'm Kim Östman from Turku, Finland. Welcome to my website!

I originally hail from the bilingual town of Pietarsaari on Finland's west coast. Currently I live in Turku. I hold a D.Sc. degree in technology and work as a Senior designer at Nordic Semiconductor, on the topic of radio-frequency microelectronics.

I also hold a Ph.D. in the history and sociology of religion. My research interests in that field focus on the intersection of Finnish society and Anglo-American religious movements, especially Mormonism.
