Personal profile

Research interests

I am active in a number of fields - linguistic anthropology, sociolinguistics, discourse analysis and literacy research - and concerned with issues of language, culture and globalization, especially (a) the emergence of 'superdiverse' environments and (b) issues of social and cultural inequality that accompany these globalization processes, with (c) an eye on the social-theoretical implications of all this. I investigate superdiversity in both online and offline contexts. As for the latter, my work has addressed issues and phenomena in Europe, Africa, and Asia.
