|Stefanie trained as a linguist and English language teacher at a number of institutions in three different countries. She conducted her undergraduate studies at the Ludwig Maximilian Universität München before moving to New Zealand to complete her BA(Hons) and MA degrees at the Victoria University of Wellington. Upon completion of her graduate studies, Stefanie undertook a Cambridge teaching certificate course at the International House Barcelona. In 2007 she graduated with a jointly awarded PhD degree, on the multimodal expression of (im)politeness, from the University of Auckland and the Universität Hamburg.
She joined the University of Warwick in early 2008 as a postdoctoral research fellow, where she worked in the Centre for Applied Linguistics. Her role predominantly involved research-related activities for the Global People and the King’s-Warwick projects, but Stefanie was also engaged in the Centre’s teaching and tutoring activities, seminar and conference organization, and convened the Working and Communicating Across Cultures research interest group. Stefanie has been a faculty member at Nanyang Technological University since 2010, where she conducts research on Intercultural Effectiveness in International Business and engages in a range of academic activities, including teaching on the courses Intercultural Communication, Bilingualism and Multilingualism, and Language and Gender.
With a background in intercultural communication studies and cultural anthropology as well as linguistics, Stefanie has a longstanding professional interest in intercultural research. Her personal interest in the topic derives from her travels as well as from having lived and worked in a number of different cultural contexts for a third of her life. She has given a range of conference and seminar presentations, both nationally and internationally and has published on aspects of intercultural communication, sociolinguistics, pragmatics, discourse analysis and multimodality.
Stefanie would welcome enquiries for graduate research projects and would be pleased to accept applications for MA and PhD dissertations in any of these topic areas.
