I am currently doing my PhD on the political aesthetics of the Berlin Wall.
I have more than ten years experience of teaching German as a foreign language in the UK as well as the US. I have taught all levels at university as well as in adult education. I am especially interested in language based content classes, translation, German for academic purposes and business German. I am currently collaborating with colleagues from SEES and Hebrew studies on a joint linguistic unit, exploring the historic pluricentricity of speakers in the Danube river region.

I studied English and French at Vienna University. As an undergraduate, I spent a year in Paris, studying French literature and culture at Sorbonne Nouvelle. At the end of my degree in Modern Languages, I went to Columbia University, New York, in order to do research on Paul Auster's New York novels.
