I'm a researcher with 6+ years of experience in combining quantiative and qualitative approaches for problem solving and knowledge creation. My background is in psychology and applied linguistics, and I am particularly interested in how digital technology and popular culture shape how we use and learn second languages.
I currently work as Postdoctoral Researcher for the research platform Language Acquisition, Multilingualism, and Teaching (LAMiNATE) and the Centre for Languages and Literature at Lund University. My work primarily concerns the development and validation of research methods in second language acquisition, and with a particular focus on the Experience Sampling Method. I also have expertise in experimental and mixed methods research design, advanced statistical modelling and data visualisation.
I have a keen interest in UX research, as I am always looking for opportunities to apply my skills beyond academia. Language learner (user) perspectives have been at the centre of all of my research to date: I try to understand how individuals experience different languages in their everyday lives, with the goal of bridging the gap between formal education and informal learning. I am particularly interested in the role of attitudes, motivation, and attention in learning.
