I am currently working as a postdoctoral researcher and university lecturer in the field of Special Education at the University of Eastern Finland. I have obtained my Ph.D in UEF.

My research interests include classroom interactions in inclusive settings, practices in peer interaction and epistemics in interaction.

This study describes how students initiate and manage transitions between activities during group-work. Audio and video recordings were collected in secondary school mathematics lessons (6 x 75 min) based on student-centred learning and the idea of minimal teacher instruction. In these lessons, the students were given the responsibility to initiate...
In this study we investigated how students manage their lack of/insufficient understanding of the content of a mathematical task with the aim of reaching shared understanding and epistemic balance in peer interaction.
