I was awarded my MA in English Language / Literature and Modern History from the Free University of Berlin and subsequently went to teach German at the School of Modern Languages, University of Bath. This led to another teaching position at the Department of Language Engineering (now defunct) at UMIST (now University of Manchester), where I worked on UG Joint Honours courses (mainly International Management) as well as on Masters courses for Translation Studies. I earned my PhD in English from the University of Manchester in 2002 and worked for the next two years as a Research Assistant at the University of St Gallen, Switzerland. This was followed by a stint in Australia, where I was employed as an EAP tutor at the Centre for English Teaching at the University of Sydney. On my return to Scotland I worked at Heriot-Watt University and St George’s School for Girls, before I entered the University of Edinburgh, first as an Associate Tutor and then as a Teaching Fellow.
