He has done research in reading in foreign languages at tertiary level as well as in comparative education across different national educational contexts with a special focus on criticality practices.
In 2022–2023, Sergej is leading a project on criticality in six-year-olds in the school context and together with Andreas Ebbelind he is co-leading a project on semantic waves in language use in preschool class. Both projects are funded by Litteracitet och undervisning.
Since 2020, Sergej with his colleagues Christian Waldmann and Annelie Johansson has been working on research projects on keylogging in authentic academic writing. One of the projects is funded by the Linnaeus Knowledge Environment Education in Change to investigare digital source-based writing in university students.

ASLA is the Swedish branch of the International Association of Applied Linguistics (Association Internationale de Linguistique Appliquée, AILA).
In Spring 2021, Anette Emilson and Sergej were commissioned to work on a development project for Preschool Education Programme by the Board of Teacher Education. The aim of the project was to advise on any revisions that could further deepen students’ understanding of research, develop their writing skills as well as prepare them for doing a thesis work. Their report is used in the ongoing revision of the Preschool Education Programme.
In Spring 2019, Sergej led together with Birgitta Waters a school development project on disciplinary literacy and scaffolding in multilingual classrooms. The project was sponsored by the Swedish National Agency for Education.
