I am an educational sociolinguist; before joining Exeter in 2012 I taught Applied Linguistics/TESOL on master’s degrees at St Mary’s University College and Northumbria University. In my work I draw on my own experience as a language learner, user and teacher. While I have taught modern foreign languages (Italian and French at FE level and Arabic at BA level), most of my professional life has focussed on teaching, designing provision for and researching English for Academic purposes. I taught at Thames Valley University for ten years, and subsequently led EAP provision for over a thousand students at the University of Westminster for six years. Through working with international students, I have become increasingly interested in how culture, identity and power contribute to the acquisition of academic literacy. This became the subject for the doctorate which I completed at Bristol University in 2011.
My research interests are:
- Culture and identity in formal and informal language learning
- Development of L2 students’ academic literacy in Anglophone Academia.
- Processes surrounding lecturer feedback and assessment on the academic writing of L2 students in Anglophone Academia.
- Spoken communication in academic settings
- Constructivist course evaluation
I currently supervise a number of doctoral students in the areas above.
