Personal profile

General

I joined Aston University in 2000. Prior to this, I lived in Bologna, Italy and worked at the Universities of Parma and of Modena and Reggio Emilia where I taught academic English to students from a range of faculties, including economics, psychology, pharmacy and agricultural science. 

At Aston I teach across a range of undergradaute and postgraduate modules, especially in the area of TESOL, as well as supervising PhD students. I was made a National Teaching Fellow in 2015. 

My research interests are in the areas of language teacher education, particularly teacher beliefs, classroom discourse and language-in-education policy and its implementation. Together with Fiona Copland (University of Stirling), I eidted the Routledge Handbook of Teaching English to Young Learners.
