I am an Associate Professor in the section for Sign Language and Interpreting at the Western Norway University of Applied Sciences where I teach linguistics to interpreting students. I am interested in the acquisition of signed languages by adult learners and the psycholinguistic factors that affect signed language processing in multilinguals. More recently I have become involved in documentation and corpus development of Norwegian Sign Language.
