I am an Associate Professor (Habil.) in English Linguistics here at the Centre for Languages and Literature. My teaching is mainly focused on vocabulary and phraseology, language testing and assessment, scientific methods, and academic writing.

In terms of current research activities, my work is mainly focused on the following three strands:

* Multilingualism and what role an individual's total linguistic repertoire may play when learning an additional language (in the project 'MultiLingual Spaces')

* Second Language Acquisition (SLA), where I mainly investigate how words and phrases are processed and represented in the multilingual mental lexicon, using psycholinguistic methods and approaches.

* Language Testing and Assessment; here I am especially interested in validity and reliability aspects to do with tests of vocabulary and phraseology.
