Senior lecturer and researcher in English linguistics and a qualified school teacher in English and French.


My teaching involves but is not delimited to translation and language didactics at the advanced level, English for research writing and linguistics for social purposes. Supervision of bachelor, master and PhD theses. Pedagogical development for teachers working with English as medium of instruction.


My research includes discourse analysis staged against present-day society, with a particular focus on luxury consumption. I am also engaged in the development and critical assessment of analytical models for text and discourse analysis. Another research interest is English for Academic Purposes, and I am currently involved in the project PROFiLE, which is funded by the Swedish Research Council. I am also engaged in the recently established interdisciplinary Linnaeus University Centre for Intermediality and Multimodality Studies. Since September 2015, I function as the principal investigator of the research project Metaphors in palliative cancer care, which is funded by the Kamprad Family Foundation. The project is a collaboration between Linnaeus University, Lund University and Lancaster University, UK.

Prizes and awards: The prize for outstanding scientific work in 2013, awarded by the Royal Swedish Academy of Letters, History and Antiquities for my PhD thesis on persuasiveness in wine reviews.


Administration: Director of studies for the English subject at Linnaeus University 2012-2015.
