I joined the MSc TESOL team in January 2015. Previously, I taught at University of Southampton after having completed my PhD in Linguistics from University of Essex. My research interests are in the areas of descriptive linguistics especially within the LFG and GL frameworks. I am also passionate about language teaching especially in the evaluation of ELT materials. More recently I have been engaged with projects on assessment literacy and issues on conversions and identity.
