I have a PhD in Education, MA in English Philology and BA in Teaching English as a Foreign Language. I also have a PGCert in Professional Studies in Education and I am a fellow of HEA. I am a member of the British Association for International and Comparative Education (BAICE) and the British Association for Lecturers in English for Academic Purposes (BALEAP).

Before joining Keele, I worked as a Lecturer in Research Methods, Professionalism and EAP at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (Bahrain Campus). 

 

My research interests lie in exploring educational transitions, socio-cultural theory, international education, globalisation of education and the links between education, identity , language and culture. In my work, I have explored teacher, student and institutional identities as well as the role of HE institutional culture, language proficiency and cultural diversity in student engagement in HE. I am also interested in teaching with learning technologies.

My current research projects include Assessment and Culturally Diverse Students  and Describing Thoughts Can Tell us Lots

I would welcome projects from prospective research students interested in educational transitions, language, identity, socio-cultural theory and international/comparative education. I would also be interested in working with students who wish to explore the role of HE and its culture in student engagement.
