I am an interactional sociolinguist and my main research interests are langauge, diversity, learning, well-being and education. I am driven by an interest in learning more about the everyday experience of being part of today´s diverse school environments. Therefore, I approach my data with an emphasis on the participant perspective and focus analytically on the ways in which my participants (pupils and teachers) use language in various everday situations to handle and organize their social relations. I understand such practices and experiences as both shaped by and shaping society which allows me to relate my analytical observations to for instance processes of social stratification in today´s Danish society.
