Research Interests

Academic literacy is the prevalent focus in my teaching and research. The acquisition process of academic culture in higher education has been at the core of my interest for the last few years in combination with an interest for Wenger’s Communities of Practice and Engeström’s interpretations of Activity Theory.

Other research interests include the continuing internationalisation of higher education, international education, cultural studies and minority studies.
