I am a Senior Lecturer in TESOL/ELT and also the Programme Leader for the MA TESOL.
My doctorate researched the area of international students' learning and transition experiences using narrative inquiry, and my post-doc research will focus on developing this area to focus on second language identity and also home students' learning and transition experiences.
In addition I am about to embark on collaborative research looking at the relationship between language, identity, culture and music using autoethnography and narrative inquiry.
