I am an Assistant Professor in Multimodal Interaction and Discourse (part of the profiling area “Ubiquitous wireless sensor systems” of the University of Oulu). Drawing on multimodal conversation analysis and interactional linguistics, I am interested in the study of language and social interaction in mundane as well as professional settings in various languages. Among other things, I have been working on embodied practices related to turn-taking, simultaneous talk and joint utterance formulation, multilingual practices in professional settings, and object use and space in social interaction. I am currently developing a research project on the use of mobile devices (e.g. smartphones) in face-to-face interaction.
