Portrait

As of March 2015, I am full professor of Applied Linguistics at the University of Vienna, Department of Linguistics. I was trained in German (Linguistic) Studies, where I have also received my academic qualification (PhD, 2004, in Freiburg, Germany; Habilitation, 2013, in Zurich, Switzerland).
My main research interests are located in the fields of (interactive) sociolinguistics; they particularly include (multimodal) ideologies of communication (metapragmatics) and discourse studies.
