I am an Adjunct Professor, Senior Research Fellow/University Lecturer, and a certified SLT who is working at the Faculty of Humanities, Research Unit of Logopedics, Child Language Research Center at University of Oulu, Finland (see also http://www.ouluclrc.fi/). My research interests are in the field of speech perception, auditory speech processing, and speech, language and communication in children and adults with hearing loss who use either hearing aids or cochlear implants. I am also interested in bilingual language acquisition and due to this interest, I have been working in a COST Action IS0804. In addition, I am actively developing assessment methods for auditory speech perception and speech and language. I have worked as a Visiting Scholar at Purdue University, Indiana, USA in 2013. My scientific collaboration is highly multidisciplinary (logopedics/speech and language therapy, clinical medicine, ear-nose-throat diseases, audiology, phoniatrics, phonetics, psychology, technology).
