PhD and Docent/Associate Professor in Swedish and Didactics at the Faculty of Education and Society. 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).
Current research projects I am leading on Malmö University:
Subject-specific text practices in the teaching of Swedish as a second language in primary school (Crafoord, 2022–2024)
A language teaching perspective on langauge practicum for SFI students (practice-based research collaboration with co-financing municipality, 2022–2023)
Literacy practices in the teaching of Swedish as a second language and social studies (project financed by employment as associate senior lecturer, 2019–2023)
