Elizabeth is currently teaching a pedagogical course for Ph.D. students at KTH who act as graduate teaching assistants. Previously, she taught English for Specific Purposes and Portuguese as a second language for a number of years in three countries. Her present position at the Department of Learning in Engineering Sciences has provided her with opportunities to become involved in areas linked to academic development.
Her involvement in grassroots initiatives includes topics such as learning in higher education, internationalisation, curriculum agility, integration of sustainable development, digitalisation of higher education, communities of practice, and language policy. She is especially interested in all areas that concern the development of young academic staff within Engineering Education.
Elizabeth's interest in intercultural communication led to her involvement in the early process of approval of KTH's Certificate of Global Competence.
In addition to academic responsibilities, she acts as administrative support to the management of the department. Elizabeth is the coordinator of the Enhancing Higher Education programme. She is involved in EU projects - UNITE! (the University Network for Innovation, and Technology and Engineering), IDOCOS (Innovative Doctoral Courses for Sustainability), and Nordic Engineering Hub (NordEnHub). She also supports the Division Learning in STEM in a SIDA-Bolivia project.
