I work as professor (permanent position) since 2015 (acting, since 2012)  in the department of Scandinavian languages in the School of Languages and Translation Studies at the
University of Turku.

I moved to Turku from the University of Jyväskylä where I worked in different positions and different departments (Department
of Languages, Department
of Teacher Education, Language
Centre). I received my PhD degree in Scandinavian languages in 1999 at the University of Jyväskylä.


My research
interests have focused on learning Swedish as a second/foreign language (L2). My
special interest area is the learning and development of written Swedish, writing process and interlanguage pragmatics.


My teaching
responsibilities include the MA-thesis seminar, supervision of MA and doctoral theses. I give courses on SLA both at the BA and MA level, on my own and in cooperation with my colleagues.
