Full research profile

Research and Teaching

I am the current OeAD-Lektorin (Österreichischer Austauschdienst / Austrian Agency for international mobility and cooperation in education, science and research) at the Department of German. At St. Andrews I teach German courses from first to fourth year.

I am from Vienna, Austria and happy to tell you about the university life there. For my undergraduate degrees I studied Social Anthropology and Comparative Literature at the University of Vienna. My Master’s thesis in German as a Foreign and Second Language explored the motives of German learners in Brazil and the USA.

My research interests lie within the field of foreign and second language acquisition and teaching. I currently focus on textual skills and academic writing.
