Tove Larsson has a PhD in English Linguistics from Uppsala University. In her research, which focuses on academic writing and grammar, she investigates how non-native-speaker and native-speaker university students position themselves in relation to their claims; one aspect she looks at is in what ways students’ first language affects their English production. With a background in the teacher-training program, Tove also has a keen interest in pedagogy. She has taught courses and seminars on linguistics and oral and written communication in English at Uppsala University, Stockholm University, Södertörn University and the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), as well as at high-school level.
