I am an active researcher and lecturer in the fields of TESOL and discourse studies. I hold a master’s in TESOL through Aston and I am currently working on my PhD through York St John University. Before moving into lecturing I taught English in Japan, working with Japanese volunteers prior to their departure to various overseas countries. My research is based on ethnographic accounts of these volunteers’ experiences in terms of language, communication and culture. I am particularly interested in global diversity in language and communication, and the implications of this for language pedagogy.
