About me

I came to Stockholm University in August 2018, after six years as a professor of Sociolingustics at Uppsala University (2012-2018) and four years as a professor of Swedish at Södertörn University (2018-2012).

My current research concerns literacy practices and communication in institutional settings. An earlier project dealt with elder care, where documentation plays an increasing role. During 2018, me and by colleagues are wrapping up a project which investigates information and knowledge formation related to prenatal heart faliure diagnosis. Link to project web site at Uppsala University.

My main areas of interest are discourse analysis, social semiotics, multimodality and linguistic ethnography.
