Areas of expertise
I was educated in Romania and France, and my work experience is equaly split between tertiary education in Finland and Romania. I have a doctorate degree in philology and I was granted the title of Docent (dosentti) in Romanian Studies by the University of Turku.
My research nowadays focuses on Romanian Studies, which represents the interdisciplinary study of Romanian-based cultural phenomena, ususally as seen from outside Romania. Previously, my research was conducted as well in the field of teaching of French and Romanian languages and literatures. Another field I am currently dedicating myself to is the Futures Studies and the interdisciplinary studies on the body. I have authored and edited several research papers and books on these topics, usually in partnership with researchers from the Universities of Poznan (Poland), Granada (Spain) and Lisbon (Portugal).
