University Teacher

University Teacher, English Language and Culture

In 2020-2021, I work as a substitute university teacher of English Language and Culture at UEF.

I teach literature courses and academic writing for students of English.

My research focuses on contemporary American experimental poetry. My post-doctoral project Difficult Relations: Reading for Emotion in Recent American Experimental Poetry has been been funded by the Ella and Georg Ehrnrooth Foundation, the Kone Foundation and the Emil Aaltonen Foundation. I worked on this project at the Department of English, University of Turku.

I have several articles forthcoming from my current project. My monograph, Experimentalism as Reciprocal Communication in Contemporary American Experimental Poetry: John Ashbery, Lyn Hejinian, Ron Silliman, was published by John Benjamins in 2016.

Previously, I have worked in substitute teaching positions at the Department of English, University of Turku and at Luleå University of Technology. I have a double doctoral degree/PhD from the University of Turku and Luleå University of Technology (2014).
