My work focuses on special needs education for preservice teachers ranging from early education to adult education. The main emphasis is on future teachers in basic education. I am working on my doctoral thesis in the field of German Language and Culture. My research deals with digital education export between Finnish and German speaking participants in school. My research strategy is based on mediated discourse theory and nexus analysis.
