Veronika Lovrits is a Doctoral Researcher in Linguistics (Multilingualism). She explores the social effects of talk about talk in a multilingual workplace and their implications for HR management and education. Her independent project work, under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Sabine Ehrhart, merges perspectives of critical sociolinguistics and language-sensitive management.

Veronika joined the Luxembourg academia in 2017, after 15 years of professional experience from disadvantaged neighbourhoods in the Czech Republic. She has experience in quantitative and qualitative data analysis, legal case management, and low-threshold counselling. She lectured in schools and projects for social workers, teachers and the public, also participated in policy development, organised workshops, and published in local, national, and international media.

She holds a JUDr. degree in Law and Legal Studies (CZ), a combined BA degree in Sociology and Social Policy and Social Work (CZ), and an MA degree in Learning and Communication in Multilingual and Multicultural Contexts (LU). Since 2020, she has 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.

Veronika is Associate Fellow of Advanced HE (certified junior 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.
