Research Interests

My field of research is English didactics, classroom research and teacher education. Over the years, I have gained expertise in game-based mixed methods research, in particular the relation between playing online games and reading comprehension. I am interested in the connection between education and research, research ethics, research methods (mixed methods) and open data. Currently, I am the Principal Investigator (PI) of four externally funded research projects, and a Circle U. Chair.
