I am professor in English linguistics and "docent" in general linguistics. I hold a doctoral degree (Ph.D) in theoretical linguistics.
I am member in the steering committee for MA programme in language and linguistics, and the contact person for specialization in English.
I am manager of research and research education in English language and linguistics. I am also member in the board for Section 4 for English and German.
I am trained in CPR and have attended a course in fire safety training.
I teach courses in English linguistics at all levels, including:
I have also developed a lot of teaching materials, including a traditional course book (English Linguistics: Introduction to Morphology, Syntax and Semantics, 2012, Studentlitteratur, with Mats Johansson) and a MOOC / webb-based electronic resource in academic writing (Writing in English at University, 2016, Coursera, with Ellen Turner and Cecilia Wadsö Lecaros). The MOOC is part of a bigger project in academic writing.
My research is mostly in the field of theoretical syntax, with particular reference to Finnish and the other Finnic languages; and to English. My earliest work focussed on adverbials and their positions. I have also worked on prepositional and postpositional phrases; on relative clauses; and on argument structure and realization (esp. on passive and impersonal constructions in Finnish). I am currently investigating the properties and uses of so-called ideophones in Finnish, English and Swedish; a lot of this work is done jointly with FD Maria Wiktorsson from Malmö University.
In addition to doing purely linguistic research, I have worked on more pedagogical and educational topics, such as the value of teaching study planning to university students, and the challenges of teaching academic writing to non-native speakers / writers of English. This work is done jointly with FD Ellen Turner and FD Cecilia Wadsö Lecaros.
A new addition is a project with literary and translation studies scholars into translations of prose into various languages. This is a joint project with FD Alexander Bareis (Department of German, LU), Professor Lisa Holm (Department of Nordic Languages, LU) and FD Mari Mossberg (Department of Nordic Languages, LU).
In 2015, UN member states agreed to 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. This person’s work contributes towards the following SDG(s):
