    Research interests

    My central research interest is Russian language. In my research, I apply the theoretical concepts of Cogntive Linguistics to data from Russian. In particular, I am interested in quantitative analysis of corpus data. I am also interested in historical linguistics, and I am the author of the textbook How Russian Came to Be the Way It Is (Slavica Publishers 2015).

    Teaching

    In 2018 I became a “meritorious teacher” at UiT The Arctic University of Norway. Find out more about me as a teacher by visiting my pedagogical portfolio! My portfolio can also be accessed here.
