Anikó Hatoss is a Senior Lecturer in Linguistics. Her research is focussed on the social, cultural and linguistic adjustment of immigrant communities, intergenerational language maintenance and shift, language and identity, sociolinguistics of multilingualism, linguistic landscapes, oral narratives, bilingual parenting and community-based language planning.  Her theoretical work is set in empirical ethnographic contexts and has led to direct tangible benefits for linguistically diverse communities.  She received numerous grants, including an Australian Research Council Discovery Grant (ARC DP) which addressed the settlement issues of African refugees in Australia. Currently, she is working on a project which explores well-being and parenting in Hungarian-English bilingual families in Australia and a linguistics landscapes project engaging undergraduate student ethnographers collecting visual data from diverse suburbs in Sydney.
