I am involved in courses in language acquisition and literacy within the primary teacher education, supervise and assess student theses within the secondary and upper secondary teacher education as well as teach rhetoric. In spring term I visit teacher candidates during their work placement and assess their performance. I also teach a course in technical communication that is given in Swedish and English at the Faculty of technology.


My research interests include critical perspectives in teaching and learning languages and other subjects from primary school through upper secondary school. I have 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.


I am a member of the Board for the research center Educational Linguistics in my capacity as research secretary. I am responsible for internal and external communication and coordinate EdLing seminars and other events.

In Spring 2021, Anette Emilson and I are commissioned to work on a development project for Preschool Education Programme by the Board of Teacher Education. We are examining the progression in the programme in regard to development of research and writing skills in students. The aim of the project is 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.

In Spring 2019, Birgitta Waters and I led a school development project on disciplinary literacy and scaffolding in multilingual classrooms. The project was sponsored by the Swedish National Agency for Education.
