PhD and Docent/Associate Professor in Swedish and Didactics at the Faculty of Education and Society. Starting in the fall of 2024, I will also be a Visting Professor in Swedish as a second language at the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, Linnaeus University.

At Malmö University, I am Subject Coordinator for Swedish as a second language in the Secondary Teaching Program. I am also course leader for indepenent theses in Swedish and VAL.

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).
