I am a student of Applied Linguistics (English/German) at TU Dortmund University and a visiting student at the University of Vigo collaborating with the ViEW project. I plan on completing my BA thesis by the end of 2022.
I work for Prof. Dr. Sarah Buschfeld at the Chair of English Linguistics (Multilingualism) at TU Dortmund University. Part of my responsibilities are teaching the tutorial for the “Introduction to English Linguistics” and working on the transcription of spoken data for ongoings projects of the chair (“Language use and attitudes in multilingual St. Martin “) using the software ELAN and Praat. I was also able to gain valuable experiences in statistics using the software R.
In 2021, I was part of the organizing committee of ICAME 42 in Dortmund. In the same year, I was able to collect spoken data in Croatia for an ongoing post-doctoral project on “English for touristic purposes: An investigation of linguistic characteristics, language use, and the acquisition of English in tourism environments in Cuba and Croatia” (working title) by Dr. Manuela Vida-Mannl.
My areas of interest include Multilingualism, English Language Teaching in Germany, World Englishes, English in Tourism and Sociolinguistics.
In May 2022 I will present part of my research within the research seminars Listening to the Voices that Count, organised by the LVTC research group.
