About

I currently work as a postdoctoral reseacher in the University of Turku in my own project Alongside Dementia (funded by the Academy of Finland 2020-2023). My fields of expertise are Finnish language, conversation analysis, institutional interaction, healthcare interaction, multicultural interaction, and shared decision making. I am also the chair of the Centre for the Study of Language and Wellbeing.
