Anikó Hatoss is a Senior Lecturer in Linguistics. Her research is focussed on the social, cultural and linguistic adjustment of immigrant communities and the language policies that support them.  Her theoretical work is set in empirical ethnographic contexts and has led to direct tangible benefits for linguistically diverse communities. To date, she has worked with four diverse immigrant groups in Australia: Hungarians, Germans, South Africans and South Sudanese. She received numerous grants, the latest being an Australian Research Council Discovery Grant (2008-2010) to address the settlement issues of African refugees in Australia and to model micro-level language planning. Her prior funded projects have addressed communication issues of overseas trained registrars, career choices and educational aspirations of refugee-background learners in Australia and cross-cultural perspectives in childrearing practices in the Sudanese community. She is the author of numerous publications including 1 research monograph, 20+ refereed research articles and 10+ book chapters. She has presented her research widely at international conferences around the world including Australia, Austria, Belgium, Hungary, Ireland, Netherlands, New Zealand, Slovakia, Spain, United Kingdom and United States. Currently she is working on the Linguistics Landscapes of Sydney project which is exploring language awareness in global cities through innovative tools.
