Hello! I am a researcher of human interaction, currently working as a Lecturer at Linköping University in Sweden.

Please see my CV here.

I research social interaction – the processes and rules that organize how we humans live in a social world. We usually take ordinary conversations for granted, because they are ubiquitous and permeate everything we do. However, human interaction is a rich and fascinating system, and we are only beginning to understand it. My work examines human activities as they occur naturally, to create an empirical analysis that is grounded in members’ orientations.

Currently, I am a Lecturer at Linköping University. I work on two main projects: one with the Non-Lexical Vocalizations team, exploring how language and the body intersect, especially how the body is expressed through sound (like strain grunts); the other with the Switching the Current team, looking at how (mega)games can support learning about systems complexity and climate change.

I study a variety of settings, from games to rock climbing to consulting politicians. My central methodology is ethnomethodology and conversation analysis, but I also work with discursive psychology and others. I completed my PhD in 2016 under the supervision of Prof. Elizabeth Stokoe at Loughborough University, examining constituency office interactions. I am also a trained CARM associate, which is a procedure for applying conversation analysis in communication training.

I create Youtube videos on the basics of CA, and the intersection of CA and popular culture. After all, CA is a public science since we all use and make sense of interactional phenomena everyday; mainstream media are full of examples of interactional findings (just like everyday talk).

Most of my recent publications are open access and available for anyone, but please feel free to contact me for copies of my publications or presentations!
