About me

I have been teaching Japanese since 1990s. Currently I am a lecturer in Japanese language at the Department of Asian, Middle Eastern and Turkish Studies.

I hold a BA degree in Japanese Linguistics (Sophia University, Japan) and an MA degree in Japanese Studies (Stockholm University). I received my PhD degree in Japanese Studies in September 2016 with the dissertation titled Deictic Demonstratives in Japanese, Finnish and Swedish: First and Third Language Perspectives (Stockholm University).


I have been teaching Japanese grammar, text reading, kanji and conversation at all levels. I have also supervised undergraduate students in projects and BA-theses.


My research interests are in the field of Japanese linguistics (grammar, especially in demonstratives), L2 (the second language, including the third and later language(s)) learning and language education. I am particularly interested in cross-linguistic influences in the target language performance, that is, the influence of the learners’ previous language(s) on the learning of the target language and how the knowledge of the previous language(s) possibly interacts with the use of the target language. My research involves contrastive linguistics and is typologically oriented.
