Areas of expertise
I graduated in fall 2015 from the University of Turku, and I have been writing my PhD thesis starting from summer 2016. In addition, I have worked for the projects Arkisyn and Multilingualism in Finnish industrialization at the University of Turku. I spent the academic year 2018/2019 as a visiting PhD in the University of Tartu. I have two cats, Donna and Fiina, and I occupy my free time with food and other kinds of culture.
I teach academic Finnish and I have given lectures on cognitive linguistics and construction grammar.
I study Finnish internet memes from a cognitive linguistics point of view. My data consists of authentic multi- and monomodal intenet memes gathered from online conversations.
