Biography

I received my PhD degree in psychology in 1993 from the University of Turku (Finland), where I now serve as a professor of psychology and the Head of the Department of Psychology and Speech-Language Pathology.



Research
My main research focus is on the use of the eye-tracking method to study various visually based cognitive tasks, including, reading and text comprehension, multiple object tracking, attentional capture and recognition of peripherally presented stimuli. The emphasis is on capturing how processing of visual stimuli evolves over time. To date, my most significant scientific contributions have been made to the study of how the eyes (and visual attention) are guided through a written text. In that domain, my studies tap into different levels of written language comprehension – from word recognition via sentence parsing to comprehension of long expository texts. I have also applied the method to study attentional processes and eye guidance during reading. My research has been published in journals such as Journal of Memory and Language, Psychological Science, Cognition, and Cognitive Psychology. I have published more than 120 articles in peer-reviewed journals.

Teaching

I teach courses on cognitive psychology and psychology of language. I also supervise BA, MA and PhD theses.
