Biography

I am a doctoral researcher in the research projects iTask: Linguistic and embodied features of interactional multitasking, funded by the Eudaimonia Institute, and PeaceTalk - Talk and interaction in Multinational Crisis Management Training, funded by the Academy of Finland. My research focuses on social interaction in teamwork situations in multinational crisis management training. I use interaction analysis (conversation analysis and ethnography) to study how people from different institutions and organisations work in small teams in crisis management exercises. My research materials consist of audio-video recordings, ethnographic field notes and documents from multinational crisis management exercises.

My research interests are multinational and multiorganisational collaboration and ELF.
