Research Centre/Unit: TESOL
I am an EAP Tutor at Xi'an Jiaotong Liverpool University in China and have previously held roles in Saudi Arabia, Spain and the UK. I have a keen passion for assessment and my previous roles have seen me become heavily involved in this area. I hold a BAcc degree in Accounting and Business Law and regularly teach finance and management courses to students alongside EAP. In addition, I hold a Masters of Science (M.sc) degree in TESOL and Applied Linguistics from the University of Stirling and I am currently finishing the first year of the University of Exeter's EdD programme.
My involvement in the EdD has sparked a keen interest in professional development as well as an increasingly passionate fascination with how corpora link to language assessment.
My research interests in these areas have allowed me to present at numerous international conferences including in Singapore, Dubai, Egypt and Oman. These interests have also allowed publication opportunities in different national and international journals.
