PhD and Docent/Associate Professor in Swedish and Didactics (Language Arts Education). My research interests include disciplinary literacies, text practices and knowledge-building interaction in second-language education. My research often builds on systemic-functional linguistics, Bernstein's sociology of education and critical discourse analysis. An important aim is to shed light on possibilities for promoting students awareness of texts and language in way which creates possibilities for moving between content-area discourses and looking at them critically.

My teaching mostly involve Swedish as a second language for teachers and supervision of students' theses. I also supervise PhD students in the post-graduate study programme SLDI (Languages and Literature in Education).
