I am Professor of English and Adjunct Professor (Docent) in Multimodal interaction analysis (University of Jyväskylä). My research is based on video-based methods that are used for studying everyday talk and interaction. I lead international and funded research projects, for example the project Generation Z and Beyond (2018-2022), which is one of the University of Oulu's profiling projects funded by the Academy of Finland. I'm also leading the project iTask, Linguistic and embodied features of interactional multitasking (2015-2022, Academy of Finland and the Eudaimonia Institute), which investigates how people talk and interact as part of their busy everyday lives. I have spent research periods at the University of California, Santa Barbara and the University of Helsinki (Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies). I am Head of English philology and Director of Eudaimonia Institute. I am also a principal investigator in the COACT research community.
