Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I am a Latinist specialized in various aspects of medieval documentary Latin and computer-assisted historical linguistics. My main mission has been to develop and test methods for integrating diplomatic and textual-philological information in treebank-based corpus linguistics. After my PhD project on the change and variation of the Latin case system, I have carried out two post-doctoral projects, the first one consisting of a treebank-based study of the language competence of early medieval Latin charter scribes (University of Oslo) and the second one focusing on the multimodal aspects of the same charters (Academy of Finland). Currently, I hold an Academy Researcher project titled "The learning of Latin in the 8th to 12th century: a linguistic approach to medieval Latin literacies", funded by the Academy of Finland (grant no. 348564).
