I am a teacher of Swedish and of Swedish as a second language. My research interest lies in the language aspects of Science Education, both how language activities might be used as a tool for developing content knowledge and how science teachers might learn to teach science from a language perspective. My dissertation Describing with words, 2014, explores how two experienced upper secondary physics teachers design and try out language activities in their teaching of physics.
