Overview

Before joining the Graduate School of Education, I worked as Academic Lead and Senior Lecturer in Psychology at Exeter, focusing my teaching on mental health in educational settings and the trailblazer Education Mental Health Practitioners (EMHP) training programme. Prior to this, I completed a PhD in Theoretical and Applied Linguistics at the University of Cambridge, investigating the interaction between autism and bilingualism as part of the MEITS project . My research sought to illuminate the school experiences of bilingual children on the autism spectrum. It also aimed to delineate the perspectives of parents and educational practitioners, adopting a multi-informant, phenomenological approach. Before undertaking research, I worked as a secondary school teacher in Modern Foreign Languages, a mentor for students with disabilities and mental health difficulties, and a translation trainee at the European Parliament. Drawing on these varied experiences, my teaching at the GSE focuses on mental health, developmental conditions and language education.

Research interests

My research interests fall at the intersection between education, multilingualism and developmental psychology, and have led to my involvement in a range of interdisciplinary research projects, most recently exploring bilingualism and wellbeing in the family setting.
