I am currently working on my PhD project which is a continuation of my licentiate thesis Learning from giving feedback: Insights from EFL writing classrooms in a Swedish lower secondary school. My research interests include second language writing, assessment and peer feedback. I am also involved in a joint project on L2 students’ experience of academic reading (with Lisa McGrath and Špela Mežek) and a project entitled School development through teacher research – a comparative study on Lesson and Learning Studies in Sweden and Tanzania (with Ingrid Carlgren, Inger Eriksson, Gunilla Höjlund, Viveca Lindberg, among others).
