I am a Doctoral Researcher in Linguistics (Multilingualism), exploring the role of talk about talk in a multilingual workplace. Under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Sabine Ehrhart, I merge perspectives of critical sociolinguistics, education, and language-sensitive management.

My background prior to joining Luxembourg academia in 2017 includes 15 years of professional experience in disadvantaged neighbourhoods in the Czech Republic. I bring a diverse range of skills to my research and teaching, namely quantitative and qualitative data analysis, legal case management, and low-threshold counselling. I have also lectured in schools and projects for social workers, teachers and the public, participated in policy development, organised workshops, and published in local, national, and international media.

My academic qualifications include a JUDr. degree in Law and Legal Studies (CZ), a combined BA degree in Sociology and Social Policy and Social Work (CZ), an MA degree in Learning and Communication in Multilingual and Multicultural Contexts (LU), and a postnominal title FHEA (UK). Since 2020, I have been teaching critical metalinguistics at the University of Luxembourg, in the Master of Learning and Communication in Multilingual and Multicultural Contexts, the Master in Border Studies and the Bachelor in Education.

I am a Fellow of Advanced HE (certified teacher in higher education) and Associate Partner in the project "Enhancing language education in cross-border vocational education" at the European Centre for Modern Languages of the Council of Europe. Additionally, I am an active member of two professional networks, GEM&L - Groupe d'Études Management & Langage (Strasbourg) and Bilingualism Matters Luxembourg.

My doctoral work was awarded the Nigel Holden Prize in 2022 at the 15th GEM&L International Conference on Management and Language at the University of Passau, Germany.
