Biography
I work at the Department of English as University Lecturer. I gained my PhD in English Philology in 2004. Thereafter I have taught at the University of Turku focusing on English linguistics. I am also Docent in Applied Linguistics at the University of Jyväskylä.

Research

My research interests have focused on learning English as a second language (L2). My special interest area is the learning and development of spoken English, especially pronunciation. I have also focused on the development of learner language, the effect of teaching methods on learning, and learner beliefs. The topic of my PhD was the connection between phonetic transcription skills and pronunciation learning and accuracy. Thereafter, I have studied spoken language skills in a wider perspective, such as the learning of intonation or spoken language fluency and complexity. I have also studied the differences between written and spoken language as well as the use of technologies to facilitate L2 learning.



Teaching

My teaching focuses on English linguistics and language skills. I have given small group teaching, led lecture series and seminars on my own and in cooperation with my colleagues. In addition, I have supervised theses on BA, MA and PhD levels. I have taught English Phonetics and pronunciation for many years as well as courses focusing on learning English as a second/foreign language. I have also led methodological and project courses.
