Profile

I am leader of the Language and Educational Practices (LEP) research cluster and convenor of the EdD unit on Language, Culture & Education. I have worked in the field of international language education for 30 years, having been a language teacher, lecturer, translator, researcher and curriculum consultant in several countries of East Asia, Europe and the Middle East. For several years I was involved in British Council and DfID funded curriculum development projects in China and Indonesia, from which I developed a continuing interest in the Asia Pacific region.

My recent research projects and publications have focused on language and identity (including the critique of ‘the East Asian learner’ stereotype); the branding and marketization of English as an International Language; and the role of intercultural communication in the internationalization of education. I use several languages in my personal and professional life, most recently concentrating on Modern Greek.
