Background and activities

I am currently a PhD student and my field of interest is Norwegian Sign language, one of the minority languages of Norway.

The primary research question for this study concerns spatial language in Norwegian Sign Language (NSL). I study videodata with naturalistic conversations where interlocutors talks about spatial surroundings in various ways. Norwegian Sign Language in general is very under-researched, thus also spatial language.
 

I am currently on leave from my position as Assistant professor.
