I’m psychology researcher interested in language comprehension and visual cognition. I’m especially interested in how people can understand each other, with a relatively good precision, although they do not always say what they mean (e.g., when they use figurative language); and what the reasons are why they sometimes fail in the comprehension process. I primarily examine these questions using eye tracking, and combining eye tracking with other laboratory measures.
I currently work as a postdoctoral researcher in Academy of Finland funded project LogoAlpha (exploring differences between logographic and alphabetic languages) and in Strategic Research Council funded project FINSCI investigating and fostering Finnish science capital. Physically I’m located in the Department of Psychology at the University of Turku.
