My research interests comprise questions related to the revival of heritage languages, language ecology, verbal art and its relations to non-human animals and other beings, domestication, and health.

Since 2008, I have been working with Veps--a Finno-Ugric minority in northwestern Russia. While my initial interest regarded the promotion of Vepsian heritage language, I later augmented my focus to verbal art and healing practices and relations between human and other-than-human beings as expressed in communicative practices. In particular, I am interested in how environments are constructed and construed through linguistic and paralinguistic practices.

At the moment (2020), I am working on three main projects:

1. Links between (indigenous) ways of speaking and environmental change. In 2019, I was awarded a KONE grant to conduct this research among rural Vepsian settlements. This work is grounded on indigenous methodologies and is thus coordinated with a Vepsian indigenous scholar;

2. Language responsibility in relation to a place. For this, I have co-edited a volume for Fennica Series Anthropologica (submitted);

3. Indigenous conceptualization of sustainability. This work has fruitfully provided a special issue for COSUST, which will be published in April 2020.

In 2018, my colleague Dr. Ferguson (Univ. Nevada, Reno) and I established an EASA network on Linguistic Anthropology (ELAN) to further develop this discipline within the European context.
