My research and teaching activities deal with foreign language learning. In my doctoral dissertation I examined what kind of language learning, problem solving, identity building, and social action occurs in the networks adults and children participate in their everyday life situations, and further, how these practices are related to their language learning. My research approach is mediated discourse analysis, more specifically nexus analysis. I am currently working at the University of Eastern Finland, Teacher Training School.
