I have a long-standing interest in Old Norse literature. For several years, I was active as a translator to Estonian of Old Norse literary works. In 2014, while working in University of Tartu, Daniel Sävborg and I succeeded in securing research funds for project PUT479: 'Encountering the Otherworld in Medieval Nordic Literature: New Perspectives'. From summer 2014 to the end of August 2015 (when I left for UCL) I was employed as one of its research staff. The research outputs include two articles in edited volumes.
