General description

I serve as a Senior Researcher at the Centre for Applied Language Studies. My academic journey includes defending my Ph.D. at the University of Jyväskylä in 2009, where my notable contribution to the field was an article in the Journal of Sociolinguistics, which has significantly influenced the methodology for the qualitative analysis of interviews​. My current research focuses on multilingual learning environments and the development of extreme citizen science methods.

A major achievement has been my service as an Academy of Finland Research Fellow from 2016 to 2021. Since then I have taken on the role of the JYU Principal Investigator for a European multilingual citizen science research project, collaborating with schools in Finland and Italy (2021-2023) and in the project ‘Nordic basic schools as past, present and future sites for solving the challenges of making diverse inclusive knowledge-based societies’ funded by the Future Challenges in the Nordics research programme (2022-2026).

Since 2020, I serve as a lab contact person for the FORTHEM Multilingualism in School and Higher Education Lab. I am the co-chair for the Citizen Science in schools project of the Multilingualism Lab and the PI for Modelling Citizen Science for education (MSCEDU) FITFORTHEM co-creation project (2022-2023).

My service for journals: advisory board member for Alkalmazott nyelvtudomany Hungarian Journal of Applied Linguistics; editorial board member for Magyar Nyelvjárások (‘Hungarian dialects’)Editorial board member for Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication; editor for  Apples – Journal for Applied Language Studies; Editorial board member for Fórum Társadalomtudományi Szemle/ Forum Social Science Review.
