Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I am a university lecturer and docent in Swedish and act as discipline coordinator for Scandinavian languages since 1.8.2019, vice leader of the Bachelor's programme in Nordic and Fenno-Ugrian languages and literatures since Augusti 2023. I teach in the Masters programme in Scandinavian languages and literature and the Bachelor's programme in Nordic and Fenno-Ugrian languages and literatures. I also supervise a doctoral student as an assistant supervisor and responsible professor.

I have completed 50 credits of studies in university pedagogy. During 2023 I work on my bachelor's thesis in university pedagogy which will make me a qualified teacher.

I have several positions of trust, I am chair for the Swedish language board in Finland, member of the Matriculation examination board and the mother tongue section and editor-in-chief of the scientific journal Folkmålsstudier.

My primary research interest is on present day Swedish, especially Swedish in Finland. My research focus is at the moment on language choice in work life, writing and other text production processes, official texts such as texts from the authorities in social media and students' texts.
