Biography

I work as a project researcher in a project "Tuntemattomalla päähän", funded by Kone Foundation. The project aims to research and implement use of literature in teaching Finnish for adult immpigrants. Additionally, I am a PhD student in the Utuling doctoral program in the department of language and translation studies.

Previously, I have worked as a university-teacher of linguistically and culturally responsive teaching. I was teaching multiple courses for pre- and in-service teachers and preparing learning material.

I have worked as a teacher of Finnish language in several adult education institutes in the Turku region, and as a teaching assistant at the university of Tartu, Estonia.
