Personal profile


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.
