I am a Doctoral Researcher in Linguistics (Multilingualism) with an independent research project under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Sabine Ehrhart. Merging perspectives of critical sociolinguistics and language-sensitive management, I run innovative action research at an EU institution in Luxembourg in which I explore effects of talk about languages.

I joined the Luxembourg academia in 2017, after fifteen years of professional activity in the Czech Republic. I have experience in quantitative and qualitative data analysis, legal case management and low-threshold personal counselling. I have participated in policy development, taught in schools and projects for professionals and the public, organised workshops, published in local and national media, and secured funding for international projects. I focus on communication and social inclusion and my professional perspective is interdisciplinary. I hold a combined BA degree in Sociology and Social Policy and Social Work (CZ), a JUDr. degree in Law and Legal Studies (CZ), and an MA degree in Learning and Communication in Multilingual and Multicultural Contexts (LU). Since 2020, I have been teaching critical metalinguistic topics in the Bachelor of Education and the Master in Border Studies, as well as supervising MA theses in the Master of Learning and Communication in Multilingual and Multicultural Contexts at the University of Luxembourg.

I am Associate Fellow of Advanced HE (certified junior teacher in higher education in the UK) 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. I am also a member of two professional networks – GEM&L - Groupe d'Études Management & Langage (Strasbourg) and Bilingualism Matters (Luxembourg).
