Research Interests

I focus on various aspects of academic writing in research-producing settings. I adopt an academic literacies perspective, which sees academic writing as a situated social practice. This critical perspective draws attention to how writing practices differ between various groups of academics – based on their discipline, methodological orientation, institutional setting, staff category, and so on. Specific topics include

  • Research productivity
  • Bibliometrics
  • Gender gaps in productivity

I also conduct research on doctoral education, focusing on identity development of doctoral students, and the PhD by publication as a new and unsettled genre.
