About me

I’m interested in how people can understand each other although their language use is not precise (e.g., when they use figurative language); and what the reasons are why they sometimes fail in the comprehension process. Moreover, I have a wider interest towards language comprehension in general and towards visual cognition. 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 Strategic Research Council funded project FINSCI investigating and fostering Finnish science capital. Physically I’m located at the Department of Psychology at the University of Turku.
