Since March 1, 2022, I have been employed as a substitute research advisor (specialist in research funding) at the Grants Office, Luleå University of Technology.
My background is in humanities research and university teaching. After studying mainly in Umeå and Karlsruhe (Germany), I earned my PhD in 2004 at the University of Gothenburg in German Literature. Later I worked as a university teacher and researcher in German both at the University of Gothenburg and at Stockholm University. In 2011-2014, I held research funding from the Swedish Research Council for an individual research project. I have also been employed as a foreign lecturer in Swedish at the University of Tartu (Estonia) for two three-year periods, 2008-2011 and 2014-2017.
