Her teaching load also included Introduction to the Study of Meaning (semantics and pragmatics), (Inter)cultural Studies (focus on Ireland and Canada), Terminology, Text Linguistics, Research Methods in Applied Linguistics (for teachers), and Introduction to Systemic-Functional Linguistics (for the students of the Doctoral School for Philological Studies).

Her interest in the study of language in its social-cultural aspects led her to the investigation of Romanian communities in Canada, to sociolinguistic studies among Anglophone Canadians, as well as to reception studies and linguistic approaches to poetry. She is also a respected translator of poetry, fiction and non-fiction. Apart from her professional activities, she disseminates various practices for good health under the generic title “From energetic gymnastics to internal alchemy”, which include elements of Taiji Qigong (i.e. Qigong preparatory for Taiji), medical Qigong and Wuji Gong.
