Curriculum vitae

Alexandra studied English and French at the University of Vienna and received her diploma in 2017. She has experience teaching those subjects at a compulsory school in Stockholm, and an academic high school and a business college in Vienna. She started investigating implicit and explicit grammatical knowledge of Swedish learners of English in her diploma thesis, and continues to do so in her PhD, extending the target group to Austrian students. Alongside her interest in EFL grammatical knowledge, Alexandra aims to explore the impact that different types of instruction and Extramural English have on learning. In October 2018, she was awarded a seed grant of the #YouthMediaLife research platform, and in October 2019, she joined the English department as a uni:docs fellow.
