Meritförteckning

Fon (Name on publications: Valisa Krairiksh) is a Ph.D. researcher in interpretation and translation studies. Fon's research interests include strategies for intercultural communication, multilingual communities, discourse analysis, white-normativity & power asymmetry. Her Ph.D. project's working title is "Navigating access to justice: Interpreter-mediated interactions between Thai women at shelters and social workers"

After completing her masters, Fon built 2 concurrent careers - one in community interpretation and another in managing community outreach projects engaging with various minority populations. She returned to academia because she started to feel that, as a Person of Colour in Finland, and belonging to a minority subject to gendered racism, she had reached the 'allowed' limits of the system. The only way forward was to challenge the system to expand through facts and research.

She is dedicated to contributing towards a more equitable society. She strongly believes in fair representation, building shared understanding to combat polarization, and working towards an inclusive society where people are treated with dignity and empathy regardless of appearance, capability, or origin.

Fun geeky fact: She has had a peculiar love for phonetics and the IPA since the early 2000s, when she was a linguistics undergraduate at Monash University. The first time she saw an IPA beer on a supermarket shelf led, subsequently, to the first time she tried beer (she thought it was a beer for linguists).
