About me

I am responsible for KTH's pre-sessional course in Study Skills and English, which runs in August every year.  In term-time, I teach courses in Rhetoric, Professional English, and Scientific Writing for programme studentsresearchers, and degree-project supervisors.  I also tutor at the Centre for Academic Writing and Rhetoric and have collaborated on Epigeum's online course in English for Academic Studies.

I am passionate about language and communication, and over the years I have studied English, Esperanto, French, German, Japanese, Persian, Portuguese, Spanish, and Swedish. I am also interested in the ways that English functions as a lingua franca and the changing role of English native-speaker norms in lingua-franca settings.

I work within the Communication in STEM research cluster. My recent work includes co-creating the KTH Guide to Scientific Writing (see here for a recent article) and producing a handbook of teaching and learning activities for engineering communication. I am a founding member of Global Engineers Language Skills (GELS), and I have presented the network's progress at various international conferences.
