I am an Associate-Professor in education at the University of Luxembourg, working at the Institute for Research on Multilingualism. I am a sociolinguist by training, but I engage in transdisciplinary research (drawing from anthropology, sociology, sociocultural psychology, social semiotics or the history of sciences). Within this transdisciplinary framework, I inquire into questions related to work, learning, language and education. I find that writing, research and teaching offer me an interesting lens to explore and understand various aspects of social life and social relations. Methodologically, I am especially interested in using nexus analysis, ethnography, and multimodal discourse analytical tools to work out stakes in the important debates of our times. These include for example:
Epistemology and methodology: What are the conditions for an inter/transdisciplinary dialogue? How do we work across values and methods in order to make research with a societal impact?
Multilingualism and migration: What does it mean to teach, learn, work or live in conditions of heightened diversity and mobility? What are conditions for more just and convivial interactions in higher education, primary school or vocational education?
Work: What are changing discourses in/around/about work and training? What are new meanings of work in the current context of technological development? What are relations between language, vocational education and (un)employment?
